Contemporary designer / maker.
With a passion for designing and creating and an eclectic mix of interests, I like to experiment with various creative techniques and materials. Over the years this has included wood, fabric, paints & pencils, metal and stone.
I had been woodturning for some years before studying jewellery, so it was no surprise that I began to combine timber with sterling silver to create my unique pieces of jewellery. Using predominantly Tasmanian species, the different timbers create a diverse palette of colours and textures to draw inspiration from.
With the old adage in mind “Variety is the Spice of Life”, I will continue to design and create, with inspiration coming from playing with shape and texture, experimenting with new materials and techniques and the simple desire to try something new and make something unique.
