Originally trained as a jeweller, in recent years I have applied my fine metal working skills to the craft of automata making.
Automata lend themselves perfectly to storytelling which gives me plenty of scope to explore much loved tales or the briefest of moments from everyday life. Aspects of the wildlife of my home country of Scotland and of Cornwall are present in both my jewellery and automata too. Ideally stories and nature come together in one.
On top of crafting in my garden studio I also teach on the Foundation Art and Design course at Falmouth University and attempt to bring up two lively girls. Please bear all this in mind when ordering work - good things take time!
