I discovered that my niche skill within the world of jewellery-making is etching, especially hand-drawn nitric acid etches. Through this method of scraping away lines of black etching fluid I fell in love with pattern drawing and this love has become my ink and paper illustrations.
I am greatly inspired by nerd culture, the human condition, mythological creatures, and anything a little bit fantastical. As well as being a jeweller, and filmmaker, I also create illustrative drawings. My illustrations are highly patterned, and feature subjects from portraiture, to faerytales, to the natural world.
