Artist’s statement

Beauty: (noun) the quality of being pleasing to the senses or to the mind. Natural: (adjective) existing in or derived from nature, not made or caused by humankind. Raw: (adjective) in its natural state, unprocessed. Foraged: (verb) obtain (food or provisions) by searching. Jewel: (noun) an ornament or piece of jewellery containing a precious stone.

My practice focuses on the collection and transformation of raw, natural materials into body adornments. I see beauty in the cycles of nature, from the buds of blossoms to the bounty of fruit and the dried and decaying remnants of these processes.
