I love old tools, they have history and carry the marks of wear of their previous life.
They’re often made to last and beautifully designed so it can be very satisfying bringing a rusty old tool back to life.
Up-cycled and painted furniture:
It is very rewarding transforming a neglected piece of furniture into an item that is both beautiful and a pleasure to use.
Mosaic and creative tiling:
I’m a magpie when it comes to colourful old crockery, tiles, pebbles, shells, beach glass and other little treasures.
My mosaics are inspired and made with these found and collected objects.
Design and illustration:
As well as my more illustrative artwork I really enjoy working with clients to design hand drawn artwork for specific projects like logos and posters.
Carved wooden sculpture
I found my love of wood carving whilst doing a BA in design crafts. I particularly like using English hardwoods and combining wood with forged steel.
My sculptures respond to the quality of the wood and my desire for adventure and lost worlds.
