I am a British Polymer Clay Artist born in Germany into an artist family.
Having worked in other mediums a chance discovery of Polymer Clay in 2011 is today my prefered choice for creating unique jewellery pieces and sculptural objects.
What drives me is the process of creativity, discovery, the unknown and the seemingly impossible. My designs are for lovers of the unusual. My reward the delight and astonishment of the viewer to my work and its material.
Inspiration for my work comes from a multitude of influences in my life. Amongst them 20th Century Design, music, the natural world, the industrial revolution and its technologies just to name a few.The design principles I apply to my work are simplicity, wearability and craftsmanship. Each piece is entirely handcrafted to a high standard and unique to the wearer.
I am also an international teacher and have given workshops in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, USA and Malta.
