I was educated in the City of London, between the river Thames and the old jewellery and watchmaking district of Hatton Garden. I became fascinated by the beautiful clocks and scientific instruments created there. I studied traditional jewellery and silversmithing at Sir John Cass School of Art where I created my first collection of metal sculptures in 1990. 


I set up my first workshop in London's Soho in 1993,  where I designed and made contemporary jewellery for private and retail clients including Harrods, Browns, Ally Capellino, Janet Fitch, Dinny Hall, Electrum and Jigsaw UK & Japan. 


In 1996 I moved my studio out of London's busy West End to the more tranquil setting of Eel Pie Island on the river Thames near Twickenham. Then one night, shortly after moving in, my studio burnt to the ground. I lost everything overnight.


This catastrophic event triggered a re-evaluation of my life and work. Soon after the fire, I was introduced to a Tibetan Buddhist teacher in London and became his student. In 2007 I moved to a Buddhist retreat centre in France where I established a workshop making and restoring sacred Buddhist metalwork. I visited Nepal and Sikkim where I learned more about sacred art and craft. 

In 2017 I started making a collection of small bronze sculptures, the first sculptural pieces I had made since leaving college. 


These objects first appear sparkling in my imagination. I try to create them as carefully and accurately as possible by sketching, making models and resolving complex technical issues. Completing the finished piece often takes several weeks and uses all of my jewellery, silversmithing and metalworking skills. I love the precision and enduring sparkle that metal provides. 


The radiant and cyclical flow of energy in the universe is a constant inspiration and is one of my favourite themes. 


As a jeweller I spent years exploring how jewellery enhances the body and mind of the wearer. As a sculptor, my goal is to explore how large scale, monumental jewels can transform our physical environment.
