Lapis has been valued for thousands of years for its beautiful blue color. Lapis beads have been unearthed at Neolithic burials, and it was famously used in the funeral mask of Tutankhamun. In the middle ages lapis was ground into powder, the resulting ultramarine pigment used by Renaissance artists. It was so expensive that its use in paintings was often reserved for the most important characters, especially the Virgin Mary.

My work is organic and purposefully rustic. My pieces take a journey with me as I create them and this aesthetic celebrates the signposts that mark this journey - surface stitches, tool marks, texture and patina are beautiful.
I use found and salvaged objects a lot in my work. These tell a story and reflect my commitment to sustainability.
Pricing is one of the hardest things for an artist. I try to keep my prices accessible, whilst reflecting the time and materials that have gone into creating my pieces.
My process is very organic and personal so, the short answer is no, I don't generally take custom orders. However, please feel free to reach out to me if you have something in mind. I've worked with several of my regular customers to create a piece that uses a material or object that holds a special meaning for them.
