I am a metalsmith who is inspired and driven by narrative and storytelling. I have always had an undefinable gravitation to the Scottish coast and the knowledge of my country’s, and my own history, is of the utmost importance to me and instills a sense of understanding and belonging. The powerful imagery and enchanting stories of the Scottish landscape have always captivated me and been a great source of inspiration for my work.
I love making, be it working with three dimensional models or channeling my ideas through a pencil. Pattern and texture is abundant in my work as it allows me to bring forms to life and illustrate the inspirations behind a piece. The use of traditional silversmithing and jewellery techniques is important to me; I feel a connection to metal and am in love with its ability to take any form.
