As an artist jeweller I specialise in working with unusual techniques, materials and inspirations. My design philosophy is to always try something new and to keep pushing the boundaries of my work to create something fascinating you will not have seen before.

I work in whatever material suits my work, titanium, aluminium, precious metals and stones, plastic, paint and resin. Colour figures highly and I use a variety of ways to include it in my work from using a photo inlay technique I developed myself to custom painting techniques more usually used on cars and bikes.

My inspiration springs from a fascination with Formula 1 and sounds. Music and the sounds of the race track inform a synesthetic and abstract response I then use as a creative source for my jewellery.
