Artist's Statement

 

I live and work in Edinburgh and am based at Coburg House Studios in Leith.  I use resin as a material as pattern and colour are very important aspects in my work, particularly a vintage inspired colour palette.   

Inspired by the simplicity of Japanese design, my most recent work involves inlaying pattern into resin or just a simple line, giving the quality of a drawn line.  This body of work involves mould making and casting, then through techniques such as saw piercing, filing and laborious sanding, the inlaid pattern is revealed and a soft matt finish is achieved.

I produce colourful bold pieces including earrings, necklaces, bangles and cufflinks
