"Nurses play a vital role in my life as a past social worker and special education instructional assistant. They are the backbone of healthcare and do the dirty work behind the scenes! Thank you for all your support keeping everyone safe and healthy during uncertain times."

"Working in a caring profession is a calling and so many wonderful people fulfil these roles with courage, fortitude and love. Big respect and thanks to these individuals who provide a vital service especially in these difficult times. Many of us would not be alive without your care and support."
I am drawn to creating both beautiful objects and radical disruption.
I create jewellery from gemstones and found objects; wearable aesthetic heirlooms.
However, much of my current exhibition work is women centric and also explores much darker political comment about gender-based violence and misogyny. I create as my awareness evolves within my experiences of seeing, hearing and feelings about living within a toxic patriarchal culture.

"During my life nurses and the medical profession have been a big part of my life, most notable would be my car accident, intensive care and ward staff, but ever since with physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, the neuroscientists I’ve seen, occupational therapy, plastic surgery teams, foot and leg specialties. Though-out I’ve received the best possible care and owe a debt of gratitude I can never repay. Then there’s the Cancer specialists who cared for mum for many years and gave us longer with our mum. The compassion, the extra miles gone to. I am in awe of the system that provides for all."
I am untrained, and uncertain of what I intend when I start the process but I will find beauty, or gain intrigue with all my muses. An expression, a pose, an aura! I find beauty in life and people fascinate me. Everyone has a beauty and I love it if I can capture an emotion or wonderful thought.
