A small insite into some of the processes and materials used in my creative process.

Etching plays a very important part in lots of areas of my work.  I use a photo-etching process which involves drawing out images which are then transferred onto different metal surfaces.  I love the way I can have my drawings etched into different metals, the fact that they are hand drawn rather than computer generated gives them a more individual appearance.

I also use the lost wax casting process for my jewellery.  This is a brilliant way of reproducing work & the casting will pick up very detail.
