I have spent a number of years running my own contemporary craft gallery in the historic city of Lincoln and now concentrate fully on my own making practice based in Leicester UK.     

The Colourfield collections are created from my own original paintings.  I use acrylic paints, chalks, inks and gold leaf, silver and resin. Every single piece is a one off, no two pieces are the same.  I make collections in small batches according to the painting I have selected. 
My desire is to emphasize the use of non-traditional materials and innovative techniques to create original one off, jewel like pieces of wearable statement jewellery.
