Enamel and Print Artist
My love for enamelling began when I was studying for my Masters. During the three years I studied, I spent all of my time learning and understanding the various techniques in enamelling and I am still learning now.
Enamelling is the fusing of powdered glass to a metal surface; using copper as the base because it creates the most beautiful range of colours. Once the piece goes in the kiln I cannot control the outcome making each piece individual. Sometimes it is those ‘happy accidents’ that turn out the best too!
My creative influence is from the natural world and taking inspiration from objects found on walks. I enjoy exploring all kinds of flora and fauna within my practice. Although my favourite objects are leaves this is because it reminds me of my grandparents and when we used to go for long walks in the forest together.
