I am a Glaswegian jewellery design graduate of the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins, currently based in London. Since completing my MA in 2009 I have worked as a designer for Swarovski in Wattens and for the past few years I have made a move into set design and art fabrication, working for MDM Props, the White Wall Company, Glastonbury Festival's Block9 and Burning Man in the Nevada Desert.
My own jewellery and product design practice is inspired by my personal heritage, and the aesthetics and folklore of the places I have lived in, which include Alabama, Austria, Glasgow and London. I have a particular interest in modular, mechanical and practical design, combined with a strong use of colour, illustration and narrative.
