ABOUT

 

As a studio jeweler, I work in one of a kind pieces and small product batches with limited editions.

My design aesthetic manifests itself in a raw and organic manner. My work is inspired by a profound respect for nature and an appreciation of contrasts, organic forms and simple lines.

Experimentation remains a huge part of the creative process for me. Textures and patinas are strong in my work, reflected in subtle contrasts and textures.  I appreciate the beauty in imperfections, unfinished edges, patinas and the contrasts in the combination of alternative materials.

Born and raised in New Zealand, I remain strongly influenced by its diverse cultures and Pacific influences.
