For as long as I can remember I have always had a strong creative urge. From standing on boxes helping my Dad knead bread to create fantastical dough crocodiles, sculpting marzipan to create my own menagerie of various creatures to having an obsession with drawing, painting and creating things.
After graduating from Fine Art Printmaking BA at Winchester School of Art I embarked on my creative career path as part of a 5 strong team running The Beatrice Royal Art Gallery in Eastleigh Hampshire and teaching a twice weekly Art club for children. It was while working at the gallery that I found myself drawn to the craft curation aspect of the gallery and in particular the jewellery.
From the gallery I moved to Justice, a high end jewellery boutique in Winchester surround by the work of the top 40 British jewellery designers. It was during this time that I completed a silversmithing course and started designing and creating my own collection of pieces.
So with several years experience of selling others high end, hand crafted jewellery the making of a business selling my own designs begins.
