This group exhibition features works by 10 artists working in a range of different media, including installation, sculpture, video, painting, drawing and jewellery. Honouring my commitment to use re-purposed materials I created this piece which is embedded in the Museum collection. She is a vintage sconce to whom a 'candle' made from a brass kelp pod has been added. She is holding a 'flame' for the ocean, protecting, acting as a guardian in these times of pollution, rising temperatures and over-exploitation.
This neckpiece is of three Garlands of Fragments which was exhibited at Compass exhibition. This was a way of 'testing' some of my Master of Fine Arts works in a public space. In these works, I use the form of the fragment to interrogate ideas of history, place and belonging.
This was my first role as Curator - 10 Tasmanian contemporary jewellers creating very diverse and high-quality works. Well received, a great process and an incredibly beautiful show. This series of neckpieces are part of a body of work for my Master of Fine Arts (Research) which focuses on abandoned towns, sites of resource extraction. I use recycled tin, engraved with text and copper electrical wire, in a method I call 'writing with soft edges' and 'torn text'.
I was very excited to be part of this show of 16 Tasmanian contemporary jewellers. This exhibition is dedicated to artists who explore, delight in, and expand the possibilities of contemporary jewellery.
I was excited to be selected as one of 24 Tasmanian women artists for this exhibition and award. Liminal series brooches, fine silver, sterling silver, brass, copper.
In October 2019 I was lucky to be selected as finalist in Profile'19. My work is being shown alongside some of the best of Australia's contemporary jewellers. I was very happy for my work to be on 'the brooch wall' at the entrance to the show.
I made this piece called 'Legacy" to remember my mother who died earlier this year. It features text, family photographs and engraved map lines. The exhibition was held at the new Kingborough Arts/Community Hub.
This exhibition was officially opened by Her Excellency the Governor of Tasmania, The Honourable Kate Warner. The exhibition was held to celebrate the 100th birthday of my mother who is known as 'The Flower Lady'. The show featured jewellery about my mother's life and history, her love of flowers and dressing well.
