Living in Hampshire with my husband and son, I spend as much time as possible sculpting in my lovely studio at Houghton Lodge Gardens.

Over many years I have accumulated a broad range of skills all of which make up a unique dexterity for my craft.

I find adding to those skills helps to keep me inspired and excited by what I do. I think the passion for creating is a very deeply rooted part of me and my sculpting and carving is my outlet for that.

After graduating from City and Guilds of London Art School in 2016 I had the opportunity to live in South East Asia for two years with my husband.

Whilst work was certainly challenging at times, it allowed me time to consider what interested me as an artist. I was exposed to a wonderfully diverse culture and environment, extraordinary carving and wonderful Islamic patterns.

It was during my time living in Borneo that I developed a fascination with geometric patterns. Surrounded by primary rainforest in an islamic country this came in the form of sacred grometry and Islamic geometry.

I loved the order, symmetry, and precision of the patterns I was seeing, I found them captivating yet restufl.

Carving geometry is a wonderful challenge, perfect accuracy is needed and meticulous precision required. The chisel marks in the finished piece show the presence of the maker, leaving a little legacy with each mark.

Building Pyramids


This was the first carving I make when returning from living abroad. To me this one feels like the start of my new series. I’ve taken a mould and I’m making plaster casts, which are available to buy from my shop.

Making Peace

I started designing Peace at the beginning of the Covid pandemic lockdown. It was such a wonderfully absorbing restful piece to carve I gave it the name Peace.

Taking a Breath


After having enjoyed carving Peace so much I moved straight onto carving Breath. I was already thinking about it before finishing the last piece. I think the curves were an antidote to the straight lines!
