Statement

My practice explores the worn body. I am intrigued by the transitional relationship between body and object and create work that is a reflection of where I find myself in relation to issues prevalent in the media or wider populace at any given time.  As part of this process I observe myself and people around me – how we carry our bodies, casual gestures and interactions, the exteriors we choose to present and the way this is reported and positioned in the media. The main intent of my work aims to invite examination of articles traversing intimate space, to encourage reassessment of contextual aspects surrounding objects when placed in relation to the body and propose expanded definitions of jewellery.
