Born in Leicestershire, 1985, lives and works in Crathie Aberdeenshire.

Following a Bsc at The Barlett School of Architecture, Naomi McIntosh went on to do an MA in Design at Central Saint Martins. Utilising architectural processes and methodologies she has developed a “wearable architecture” exploring the potential of CAD/CAM technologies and materials such as wood and acrylic.

She explores her interest in the perception of space around the body by creating wearable objects with sculptural qualities.

Her jewellery has been shown internationally, recent exhibitions include Collect, Saatchi Gallery and Made at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

McIntosh was recently selected for the Craft Council’s Hothouse programme.
