My current work reflects an ongoing examination of my personal definition of painting and metalsmithing, and my attempt to challenge the limits of what I know to be familiar to each practice. Fuelled by the desire to merge these two disciplines, I work with a variety of materials and techniques, and explore how they can be manipulated and combined. Fragments of my paintings are often incorporated into my jewelry work as shaped and framed cameo-like forms. In a new context, these elements adopt new auras as they become independent and self-referential entities. I am intrigued by the transformation of visual language that can occur when works of both fine art and craft are recontextualized, repurposed and represented in unexpected ways.
