"I excavate small moments in time, capturing these through the jewellery and objects I make.
The often overlooked elements within the streetscape are my muse: buffed walls, wet cement scrawling, fragments and objects left behind in the rush. An exploration of the marks we make. And the mark we make. The biography of these objects, materials and spaces are what interests me. Uncovering and adding to the mostly anonymous and constantly evolving stories they collect."
