Contemporary Designer Maker, creating conceptual sculptural objects and jewellery that slaps you round the face (in a good way). Key influences are my scientific background, love of vibrant colours and fashion. My work is led by ideas and material exploration, outcomes are unknown but often wearable; pieces tend to be oversized, bold and induce curiosity. I excel at combining unconventional materials and enjoy seeing the strange reactions to my colour/material combinations.Locked Pro Plan feature

3 years full-time study, realising my passions and refining my practice. Throughout this time I have found my love for material experimentation which is heavily influenced by my scientific background, love of vibrant colours and fashion. My work is led by ideas and materials, outcomes are unknown but are often wearable; pieces tend to be oversized, bold and induce curiosity.
This course gave me the foundations to go back into higher education and study for my degree.
Part-time study from home attending regular tutorials and field trips. Areas covered include, environmental science, weather phenomena, water treatment, sustainability, agriculture and habitat classification.
2 years part-time study learning the skills and techniques required to make fine jewellery from precious material.
I created an oversized 3D printed chain with a driftwood/plastic pendant based on a concept of plastic been incorporated in to the earths natural geological cycle. The brief was as follows: Entries for jewellery or body adornment in any combinations of materials will be judged on concepts, creative design and innovation. Judges encourage you to work to a high standard of manufacture.
This award is given annually during the HCA graduate show. It is voted for by a panel who consider the works of both FE and HE students over all courses; and awarded to the student deemed to have displayed the most outstanding creativity.
We were asked to design a piece of jewellery which celebrated hallmarking and made it a focal point rather than something to be hidden. My design was a pair of earrings titled 'Touchstones'.
My work was recognised and selected during the Hereford Contemporary Craft Fair 2016 for its creative excellence. I was subsequently given the opportunity to exhibit my work at DKP Gallery along side three other selected artists.
