artist designer crafter
Near Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
Nothing makes me happier than eating home grown organic veggies, walking dogs on Scotland's beaches and hills, and appreciating the immense, and the minuscule, wonders that are all around us. All these things feed my passion for making things and my desire to live a greener simpler life, and hopefully influence others along the way.
My background is in textiles, jewellery & sculptural metalwork, mixed media work and graphic design, all hugely influenced, in both ideas and materials, by my environmental and health concerns. My future... time will tell.
At the moment I'm on a huge learning curve as I eco-renovate my mobile home so that I can have a low impact sustainable house with studio where I can (hopefully) make a living from my creative endeavours. It's a long term project as I'm trying to source materials from people's waste and do the work myself. I'm hoping it will eventually look like a beach hut or a tree house. Home.
