I am fascinated by the stories, histories and trace elements possessed by the abandoned, decayed and collections of artifacts. Through my work I aim to capture and reflect the visual imagery drawn from the discovery and exploration of these places and objects that lie forgotten over time.
As a contemporary jewellery artist, I adopt an explorative and experimental approach to making. The use of a broad range of materials and processes brings forth a multitude of potential combinations and discoveries, culminating in a series of components which work together towards a series of finished pieces.
Form and texture are two vital factors within my work. I invest time into their development through the creation of ‘multiples’ which not only track the progression of the pieces,but also communicate the imagery that feeds my concept.
