Dedicated Place for Art Jewellery & Objects

Born in 1984

Black and white, open and closed, here and there.

The more I think about opposites, the more I am pushed into thinking about what exists between both points. Where is the boundary? Is it possible to pinpoint where light becomes dark, where right becomes wrong? I am trying to answer these questions by making.

As I think and make with my hands, I have come to realise that I am interested in edges, the periphery, where one element becomes another. Where defined concepts blend into each other and become undefinable, somewhere on the edge of light and dark, day and night, the known and what we don’t know. It can be difficult to explain this grey area, and it sometimes makes me feel uncomfortable, but it is precisely this discomfort that can lead to new discoveries.

My process is an investigation in this unknown space. Only by working with my hands and keeping my mind open can I find answers.
