Describe your current work/practice in one sentence.
I carve wearable contemplative objects in acrylic, intended to draw the eye and hand ever closer.
What are three things/ideas that inspire you?
What other things do you do besides your jewellery practice?
I’m a new contributor to MetalAid (check out my article on Co–Adorn)! I’m also a musician, I work part-time, and I’m discovering Toronto, a city that I’ve never lived in before.
What is a favourite piece that you’ve made and why?
'Vessel Pendant'. It was a pivotal piece that opened up new channels of working with acrylic. It encompassed a fluidity of form and lightness that presented the potential of the material to me in a clear way.
