Biography:

My work reflects an ongoing fascination with geometry.

Clean, defined lines and strong shapes characterise my designs. I strive to create pieces that have simplicity and elegance and are well considered in the use of material, proportion and technique.

The kinetic pieces are constructed from delicate wire that interacts with the movements of the wearer. When worn, the central part start to rotate and spin, inviting the wearer to play and delight in the inherent qualities of the piece.

My most recent work, the anamorphic series is inspired by geometric patterns, particularly those derived from Islamic designs. The arrangement of the line being the connective path through the pattern led me to substitute the drawn line with a fine gold wire and reconstruct it into a 3-dimentional form. The series consists of a group of pieces that plays with the shapes and patterns that appear when seen from different angles.
