I am a Melbourne based artist originally from New Zealand. I have been working as a contemporary jeweller since 2013.
My work is process driven. I allow the pieces to change and evolve during the making process, permitting the method to direct the final outcome. This allows me to maintain a certain freedom when making work and I hope that this fluidity is reflected in my final pieces.
Material play is integral to my practice which has evolved into other mediums such as small sculpture, object based practice and installation. I find this compliments my making process by sparking ideas that flow through to my jewellery practice.
I consider jewellery a wearable art form inspiring playfulness and intrigue.
