Dedicated to supporting and nurturing creative and technical excellence in craft with a specialism in contemporary silver, working with artists, craftspeople and arts institutions.
With a background as a vocationally trained silversmith and award-winning designer, I have had the privilege of working in the arts for more than 30 years, working with individual artists, charities and arts organisations spanning contemporary craft, jewellery design and manufacturing, the visual arts and the entertainment industry with a specialism in the jewellery, silversmithing and allied trades.
I have a long-term interest in preserving and passing on high-level professional skills and building a new movement for silver. Benchmark campaigns have included Silver Speaks at the V&A and a number of exhibitions including Bonhams, Christies and Augustus Brandt in Petworth.
I am also founding member and Creative Director of ERA5050 a campaign for equality on British stage and screen, supported by Equity UK, BFI and the Geena Davis Institute which won a What’s On Stage Award in 2019 and has been widely credited with helping promote stronger female role models on our screens in the UK.
