3D Design Crafts
I am a research-led mixed media artist, curious about the psychology of touch and play. This curiosity has guided my interest in creating tactile objects for the benefit of the user, whether that is visual, mental or physical. Visuotactility is the main drive for my designs; exploring with my hands is equally as important as exploring with my eyes. Living alongside nature, in the Cotswolds, Devon and Cornwall, has inspired me to use tactile natural forms as starting points within my work. I focus my creative practice largely on casting techniques, working with various materials, such as glass, fine metals and rubbers to transform artefacts into objects with unexpected qualities. Having some experience with jewellery-making I have combined these skills together to create a collection of playful jewellery.
