I came from a creative home. My mother was an artist and my parents always had these gatherings filled with colorful creative people: filmmakers, musicians, artists. They were bohemians and encouraged me and my siblings to forge creative careers. I did a Bachelor of Design at UNSW and studying textiles, ceramics, jewelry, graphics, lighting and spatial design. I fell in love with jewelry on a year long road trip around Europe in my early 20s, that ended in the Moroccan desert. It was the Tuareg jewelry and its stories that triggered me to focus on that medium.
It’s all starts with research, like throwing out a proverbial net to the internet, books, and everyday life. I start to collect references of forms and finishes that I connect with. I pool them together and see a story sprout. There is a period where you are creating the riddle you will need to solve. That is the most challenging point. That moment of tangled thoughts that don't connect. Once it's locked in, I relish the process of detangling, solving, realizing, and creating.
