Artist bio: I am a goldsmith making one off pieces for commission and non commission from my home workshop in Sligo Ireland.
I have been making jewellery for… a long time (20 something years) and I love it. I think of my work as wearable sculpture and enjoy making my art within the confines of my discipline as a goldsmith.
My work is inspired by whatever I’m enjoying at the time of design and making. I love to play with geometry and natural patterns and I also take great inspiration for different art forms as well as nature and the built world.
Since starting out and largely teaching myself I have tried to use and develop as many gold and silver smithing techniques as possible along the way.
I am currently really enjoying the designing and making of brooches as a medium of jewellery and as with all my work hope to impart some of myself into each piece.
