I graduated from Vancouver Community College’s Jewellery Art and Design Program in 2017. Prior to returning to school, I worked for over 20 years in various non-profits in Canada and the U.S. I hold a B.Sc. in Zoology and an MBA in Arts Administration, both from the University of British Columbia.
I am inspired by the Japanese aesthetic wabi-sabi - nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect - which honours transience and accepts the passage of time with dignity and grace. Working in silver, I often use rusty objects, such as nails and spikes, in my jewellery. The presence of the maker is important and is intentionally made visible. My jewellery celebrates graceful aging, imperfection and the maker’s hand.
