Born and educated in Edinburgh, studied at Glasgow School of Art, specialising in Jewellery and Silversmithing. On qualifying, I won a travelling scholarship to Finland, at that time vibrant with exciting architecture, crafts and design.
Worked self-employed in Edinburgh, teaching FE to top-up income before moving to Germany, where shared workshops and exhibitions with other artists and taught art metalwork in Giessen University.
Returning to Scotland, I continued working on private commissions, exhibiting regularly with VAS, (SSWA). Finding my dream house, I moved to Dunoon and still make and exhibit jewellery and silverware there.
