If my memory serves me right, the first thing I ever made creatively was a doll's dress. I was sick with chicken pox over the Christmas Holidays when I was seven years old and I asked my mother for a sewing machine. My wish was granted on Christmas day when my mother presented me with a fully functioning toy sewing machine. This trend continued all through my school and adulthood at which point I had graduated in to other aspects of creativity and crafts. So naturally my future was decided. I was going to be an artist of some kind so the natural progression was for me to go to art school. In 1978 I attended 'Edinburgh college of Art' Scotland, where I explored many different aspects of art and artists.
Although I studied furniture design, upon leaving college I got involved with producing leather accessories and apparel which lead into leather jewelry and use of different metals…
