Jewellery & Sculptures

IMG_3334P1020930I describe myself as a visual artist and designer/maker of Sculpture, Jewellery and Funerary Art.  It is my experimentation with the dynamic chemistry between media and techniques which physically expresses my ideas.

I am inspired by the interconnectedness of nature and humanity, community and creativity, life and death and passionate about the protection of the natural world; to which I believe us to be inexorably linked and totally responsible for.

My work with children has become integral with my practice as to my mind Art is vital for a healthy community. It is not just about being an artist, it is about activating the imagination.
