Continuing the discussion from How did you learn your craft?:
I am very privileged to have studied at Bournville School of Art.
When I studied there the teaching was based on the Bauhaus system of art education. That meant each individual student had to experience ALL disciplines the art school offered. Life drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, metalwork, jewellery, textiles, photography and still life drawing.
I now have such a wonderful wide-range of skills at my fingertips. So when I go into my workshop and am inspired by something, I have a spectrum of creative techniques to draw from.
Bournville School of Art gave me a toolbox for life.
Concentrating on jewellery I aim to produce uncomplicated, yet unique designs drawn from my creative imagination. As everything is hand-made no two pieces can be the same.
