I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2000 with 1st class honours in Design and Applied Arts (majoring in Jewellery and Silversmithing)
I was born and brought up just outside Thurso, Caithness. I left for Art College after a few years of work and lived in Newtonmore for 12 years after college before deciding to move home with my family.
We now live in Scrabster overlooking the harbour and I have recently taken the step to open a workshop and studio in the centre of town where I make my jewellery and art on the premises.
