I am the Mythical Alchemist. I take the elements and create them at my core. As the magic builds I make more and more! Ever fantastical the elements do grow, and I will fuse them as I design and find my flow.
Mythical Alchemy is a collection of fantasy, mythology, brilliant creatures, unusual materials, and wondrous found curiosities. When I am creating I transform into an alchemist! I mix and meld together strange objects, and turn them into sparkling magical adornments. This collection is where I get to run free in the land of imagination, and bring out my most experimental nature.
While developing my degree show collection at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design 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. My portfolio of illustration is inspired by my penchant for the fantastical, and I often feature strange creatures within my highly patterned portraiture. The crisp black and white lines have become my signature style.
