I completed a Bachelor of Arts and Applied Design, from Onkaparinga College in 2004. Until moving to Wentworth, I was a full-time Registered Nurse. I am currently co-director of a gallery – Rivertrack Studios at Wentworth, which features my work.
My jewelry incorporates many different techniques, including exploring texture, patina and form and is inspired by the Murray-Darling landscape and bird life, often incorporating found objects and semi-precious stones in the designs. Each design is unique, with many hours of love and work going into the design and fabrication. Where possible I ethically source and recycle my materials. A love of carving has led to the creation of a range of hand carved walking poles, made from various locally sourced wood, mainly river red gum. I also love sketching the local landscape and enjoy abstract painting inspired by music and nature.
I am a member of the recently formed The Makers – a group of like-minded artistic creators located in the Wentworth Shire who to get together and inspire each other. My vision is to continue to learn and incorporate new techniques and materials into my work and to continue to make and supply high quality hand-made unique pieces.
