"Through experimentation I try to understand the properties inherent to the materials and extend their function beyond the accepted norm. This often leads to send ipitous results, creating objects that are imbued with a visceral and evocative meaning. I find inspiration in forming new dialogues and narratives that deviate from the expected.
I have long held a fascination with bones and found objects, and now with my training in jewellery I try to combine the metal elements with these collected pieces. For me, bone has strong symbolism held deep within the psyche. The wishbone, especially, has long bee a symbol of hope and the possibility of a wish come true."
