Through the use of structure, colour and mark making my work aims to communicate the atmosphere of the landscape it is extracted from.
Through the process of drawing and photography, I often focus on the irregularities of the natural environment that interests me; irregularity in surface and accumulated texture. Through my work I aim to recreate the natural layering and fissures in the landscape.
As a jeweller I am inspired by the way that the manmade and the organic interact. I am interested in instances where temporary manmade structures are forced to overcome the natural obstacles they encounter in an ingenious way. I am also attracted to images of abandoned structures that are reabsorbed and obscured by the environment. It is this glimpse of organic beauty that I aim to capture in my own jewellery.
