About

Born into a very creative family in Canberra, I was obsessed with collecting stones and small objects as a child, and making and creating things using any art materials I could get my hands on. I began to learn Jewellery making skills 17 years ago - after first picking it up as a hobby at evening college while completing my Bachelor of Arts degree at Sydney Uni.

After completing formal training (Diploma of Art, Craft & Design - Jewellery) at TasTAFE in Hobart, Tasmania in 2011, I have spent the last 7 years developing my Contemporary Jewellery practice and small business from a studio at Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart, Tasmania. I have previously sold work through a number of markets both in Hobart and Canberra, and participated in numerous exhibitions & events.

This is a very small sample of my production and commercial work. My work can also be found through a small number of galleries in Hobart and Canberra.

I enjoy the meditative process of making objects by hand, and the opportunity to develop new skills and expand on creative ideas in a supportive studio environment.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items will be carefully packaged and gift wrapped. Where possible, sturdy 100% post consumer recycled cardboard boxes - designed specifically for my work by a local Tasmanian producer - are used.

Please let me know if the item is a gift and you have a special message you would like to include :).

Care instructions

All Sterling Silver items may be gently cleaned with a soft toothbrush and some gentle dishwashing detergent.

When cleaning all Titanium works, please wipe gently with a clean cloth rather than scrubbing with a toothbrush. Abrading the surface may cause the colour to be worn away.
