Of all of my senses I am completely consumed by the sensation to touch. I enjoy surface texture, unusual materials, mechanical and moving components. If the sign says 'please do not touch' someone generally has to hold my hands at my side to keep my compulsion at bay. The physical involvement between the piece and the wearer seems to evolve naturally in my designs so I'm happy to roll with it and give others an insight into the inner-workings of my mind.
I recently completed an Advanced Diploma in Jewellery & Object Design at The Design Centre, Enmore. Currently I am a manager at gaffa gallery, Sydney and work under the mentorship of Rick Southwick, Zed Jewellery, to improve my technical and design skills.
