Take the driveway to the right of Hurst’s Bakery on Wellington Road and the studio is directly ahead.

Having been involved in the repurposing of metal, plastic and fabric waste in my craftwork for over thirty years, I have been committed to reducing the amount of waste produced by our current consumer society. My work is motivated by my experiences as a child of resourceful and thrifty post-war parents in Edinburgh and by watching Blue Peter in the 1970’s. My desire to re-use, re-develop and re-create can be seen in the materials I use in my creations.

It’s the first time I’ve opened a working studio after more than three decades and three countries since leaving Edinburgh College of Art in 1990.
