I live in Wellington, where I completed a BA in History and Art History at Victoria University including a diverse range of papers from both humanities and sciences. My Jewellery study was undertaken at Whitireia Polytechnic, and after graduating with a Diploma in Visual Arts I completed a Postgraduate Dipoloma in Heritage Materials Science at Victoria.

I am drawn to alternative materials for making jewellery, particularly fabrics and wood, their fragility and transience and enjoy building complex structures which reveal one face to the world while holding secrets for the wearer. I am interested in time, in the deterioration of objects, rusting and decay leaving its narrative on them, the record of their life of use. Other themes which interest me in my practice include gender, domesticity, memory, spaces, concealment, loss and narratives of human lives and relationships.
