Practice

 

For the past 8 years I have been making and participating in the contemporary art jewellery field. The idea that is embedded into my work revolves around reminiscing childhood times. I celebrate the joy of playtime by continually revisiting aspects that are related to it. Toys, art activities, and features of my drawings have influenced my decisions made through making, while blending an intuitive way of working – like a child. My current works consist of small, geometric objects that have been informed by features of the toys themselves, and have distinctive bold, black lines that outline and contain colour.
