In addition to making work from my Sydney studio, I have spent the last four years running the Creatory , a small retail space and gallery for Australian handmade art and craft, with fellow artist Gillian Brooks. At the creatory we featured unique, artisan made work and curated and co-ordinated art and craft exhibitions. Prior to that, I worked at several contemporary craft and design galleries, and in the jewellery trade. Writing is important to me, and I enjoy writing about jewellery, creativity and craft practice. Exhibition work is exciting and I have participated in contemporary jewellery exhibitions, workshops and master classes. My involvement with education, included a period as a casual at the University of Technology and Sydney College of the Arts and ten years teaching at Community Colleges.
My jewellery focuses on pared back, organic forms inspired from nature. Silver, gold and gemstones are favourite materials.
