Welcome to my creative world. I am a largely self taught artist come craftsperson living and working in Dorset near the beautiful south coast of England with my trusty studio helper Cleo the cat.
The wonderful landscapes that surround are just some of the many things that inspire me. I have a passion for colour, texture and form, the natural world and take influence from many things. I started my creative journey making jewellery and developed a yearning to try new techniques that led to short courses in metal smithing, etching and enamelling. Eventually this let me to start making components for other jewellery designers and the addition of ceramics to my repertoire.
In the last couple of years that the yearning has turned to an insatiable desire that has taken me beyond jewellery and I now work across all sorts of mixed media to create decorative art pieces as well as beads an jewellery. These include larger ceramic pieces, felted, bead embroidered and fibre art and bookmaking…basically if somebody shows me something I’ve not tried, chances are I’ll want to give it a go!
This expansion has led me to set up this new blog and shop to bring together my previous brands THEA Jewellery and THEA Elements under one expanded banner.
I am also fortunate to be part of a creative community that constantly inspires and stretches me – especially a group of very talented women with whom I publish the ‘Art Elements‘ blog…well worth a visit if you’e interested in creative arts.
