Enamel and Print Artist
My love for enamelling developed when I was studying for my Masters from 2013. 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; I use copper as the base because it creates the most beautiful range of colours. I am quite a perfectionist and enamelling is such a unique craft. This is part of the reason why I enjoy the process so much. 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 around us and I love 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.
I create personalised commissions in a variety of media, any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
