“I am delighted to be a Judge for the craft&design; Selected Awards this year and I am looking forward to seeing the six finalists in my category.

As a Designer Maker of fine enamel work on precious metals, my own work is defined by combining contemporary design with classic enamel techniques and I have been running my own business successfully now for over 25 years, after qualifying with a BA (Hons) from Middlesex University in 1986.

In that time I have developed my skills, gained experience and knowledge within my industry, showing my work across the UK and Europe and I have an enthusiastic approach to all the projects and events with which I choose to become involved. The many opportunities I�ve experienced throughout my career have shown me the benefits of sharing successes to encourage others to achieve their goals and when time permits, I enjoy doing Master Classes and mentoring groups and individuals.

I am a Freeman of The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths� and I have gained recognition and many accolades for both my work and my business acumen. I have been an active member of several business and industry organisations, including founder member and Chairman of the BPW UK Ltd York (Business and Professional Women UK); Arts Advisor at Yorks and Humberside Arts; Chairman for SAF (Solihull Artists Forum), and most recently Chairman of the Guild of Enamellers in 2008/10.

I will be looking for someone who shows a passion for their craft with an empathy and sensitivity towards the materials they work with both creatively and skill wise. I will also consider each individual in terms of their understanding of developing their own style, what makes their work different and what their vision is for the future.”
