I am a multi disciplined artist having worked with a diversity of media through out my life. In 2014 I focused my attention on the tactile processes of jewellery and silversmithing. I am a student of Material Art and Design in the Faculty of Design at OCAD University in Toronto Canada in pursuit of a BFA.
My Scottish ancestry plays a critical role in my both my artistic and cultural development. As a maker of fine handmade jewellery, my approach is fundamentally modernist. All work is original and independently handmade.
An Teallach is Scottish Gaelic for ‘the anvil’ or ‘the forge’. It is also the name of a mountain range in northwest Scotland that takes its name from the light cast upon the range and its resemblance to the colour of the anvil. There are 3 peaks at An Teallach, the fairest of the 3 named 'Sgurr Fiona'.
