Moniek Schrijer

Whitireia Polytechnic
Graduate Award Recipient


"From day one, Moniek instinctively knew what she wanted from her materials and her techniques. While her approach to both is unconventional, her handling of materials and her choices and mastery of techniques, work together to create pieces that have a real honesty and a bold stand-out presence. This collection of work is an assortment of separated identities, creating imaginative associations where new connections have been formed. Her signature is in how well her jewellery engages and works with the body, both on and off it. It is not surprising that her jewellery won the lucrative 2013 artist in residence at Toi Poneke, Wellington as well as the 2012 Finger’s Whitireia award, judged by Karl Fritsch and Lisa Walker."
