Artist's Statement

 
 
My jewellery is informed by the desire to explore colour, texture and form. I take this primarily from my research drawings and photography which focus on a number of subjects around Edinburgh. From the many allotments around the city that have rickety constructions and fascinating surfaces to the recent renovation of the National Museum that has revived my interest in the many curious artefacts exhibited there, subjects that depict an interesting construction and a timeworn appearance.
 
I attempt to construct these forms in an abstracted way through the folding and manipulation of a single flat surface. Using both traditional and contemporary techniques and processes, I work with enamel to build on the metals surface. This, integrated with my own mark making which captures the drawn qualities of my research, is channelled into creating a surface that has a quality that is both engaging to the touch and to the eye
