Artist’s statement

Natura reflects the natural qualities of my environment. Growing up surrounded by both bush and beach, I have formed a connection between the physical landscape and my understanding of environment, self, sustainability and lifeforms. Investigating the physicality of both environments, my designs encapsulate the unique phenomena and qualities of each. This intimate, personal journey is represented in the solidity of jewellery and the sculptural forms I have transformed from nature.
