About me

I make bold, playful wooden jewellery which I hand turn and hand paint in my studio near the North Norfolk Coast.

Working with geometric forms, repetition and colour, my inspiration comes from a variety of sources especially classic educational toys and nautical imagery.

I use traditional woodworking techniques and manage a small woodland which provides a sustainable supply of sycamore for my work.

I am a graduate of the Royal College of Art and taught in higher education for 13 years before moving to Norfolk to develop my practice.
