Material: Woodwork | Location: Wales
First and foremost I am a maker. I enjoy creating beautiful and decorative objects which are often inspired by my surroundings on a small farm in North Wales, which is located a stone throw away from Hell’s Mouth beach.

During my time studying 3D Design and MA Design, I discovered how strongly my Welsh background inspired my work, and how woodwork forms a part of my identity. I’m the fourth generation within my family to take up woodwork and the only female. Although I explored other materials and inspirations during my time at university, it was Wales and wood that the focus of my work often returned to.

Farming is also an important influence in my work, I take inspiration from rope tying’s which are interpreted strongly within my products through binding coloured thread and inlaying them into the wood.
