I handcraft automata, tableaux and jewellery. I predominantly work with copper, brass and silver, I also use reclaimed hardwood for the bases of my metalwork (much of which is sourced from local boat yards or the shoreline). I use enamel and patination techniques to achieve colour and texture in my pieces, I also add tiny details in reclaimed tin. Inspiration comes from the world around me and a lifelong passion for nature. Favourite subjects include scenes of trees, boats, dog walkers, and British wildlife. My work is endlessly adaptable so I am always open to ideas for bespoke pieces.
