I have been designing and handcrafting jewellery for over 20 years. I completed a silversmithing course at Sturt Gallery while at school before developing my skills attending multifuctional technique classes with renowned metalsmith, Rex Steele Merten and texturing metals with Barbara Ryman. I exhibit my work throughout Australia in exhibitions, prominent art shows and garden parties.
My studio is located on a large sheep and cattle propery near Bourke in Western NSW where I have transformed the old shearers quarters into a working studio. I live here with my husband and three daughters whom all provide endless encouragement and support
A visit to my studio is open by appointment only. Contact me to arrange a time to see my unique working environment.
I run one-day courses from my home studio, teaching the basic principles of silversmithing including metal sawing, filing, soldering, finishing and polishing techniques.
I keep my classes to a maximum of 6 people. Everyone will go home with a finished piece/pieces made to their unique design. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is provided.
Over the past eighteen months I have also taught two-day workshops through Outback Arts running courses in communities throughout Western NSW.
