Drawing on interests in both natural form and science I am currently focussing on lichen species, their form, function and chemical components, as the main inspiration for my work. The striking shapes and forms in my jewellery are frequently taken from lichen I have observed and photographed when out and about. The pieces I create often have a hidden meaning or function incorporated through the subtle use of chemical compound structures, which relate to the lichen and their various functions in the wider world. I am keen to experiment with different materials and processes when designing my jewellery and blend a variety of materials in my work including porcelain, silver, steel, copper, brass, glass and felt. Pieces are created as one offs or in small batches.
