Biography

My work deals with ideas related to the passage of time, identity, and family heritage, with frequent reference to Celtic and Norse society, and cultural motifs. These themes have resonated deeply within my being, alongside the value and integrity of making work by hand, which is essential to everything I produceI explore these ideas through the use of several different media, including jewellery/metalwork. Since childhood, I have been fascinated with thoughts of time travel and history, so my works often draw inspiration from traditional designs, and ways of working. They are based upon historic research and references, though the interpretation is mine. The result is an aesthetic that merges all of these notions into one, the product of which gives the impression of being an artifact, a relic lost to time.
