Biography

I make jewellery, vessels, sculpture, wall pieces and public artworks using a variety of techniques and materials, including forged and cast silver,  forged and welded steel, constructed and carved wood, carved stone, and found objects. My work explores the relationship between people and the places they inhabit.
