Intro
Taking visual cues from antique lace work and natural science illustrations, the work plays with ideas of perception and representation, making motifs of my encounters with the world.

Statement

A fourth generation West Australian silversmith, my interest in metal smithing began as a child during hours spent in the family workshops. This experience and legacy has instilled in me a profound respect for handcrafts and a love of working with metals.

My current work consists of jewellery pieces and objects in intricately detailed, hand-cut titanium and sterling silver. Taking visual cues from antique lace work and natural science illustrations, the work plays with ideas of perception and representation, making motifs of my encounters with the world. It reflects on history, place and the distortion of memory, elevating and preserving experience.
