I'm Scottish by birth but have enjoyed living in Australia for 14 years and now reside near the swan river with my family and pet. I have been an artist my whole life, training in Fine Art at Edinburgh College of Art and have worked in the arts for 25 years. 6 years ago I studied silversmithing and eventually stumbled upon enameling which I instantly fell in love with. I have been lucky enough to be in the top 5 finalists in the Saul Belle Jewellery competition for the last two years and my goal is to win it one day. I also co-own the Tasty Pear in Bassendean with my best friend Chantal Kilpatrick of violet clothing. My greatest joy is being alone in my studio uninterrupted, this rarely happens as life so often gets in the way, but occasionally I get that magical day with time to let my mind wander and make whatever I feel like.
