MY CREATIVE & EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY As far back as I can recall, I have been creating by imagining what things can become, turning the lost into something newfound, foraging in the bush & using whatever comes my way to make... I have always had a love for remaking & for working alongside people.
In 2000 I studied a Bachelor of Social Sciences & began working in the Youth & Community Services sector in Perth, WA developing & facilitating many creative & educational workshops & programs with a focus upon self care, creativity, life-skills & community. In 2006, I was taught the glass fusing, slumping, kiln fired art-form under the wing of an artist & I am constantly continuing to learn, develop & explore contemporary & traditional forms of creative arts including attending Dressmaking, Fashion and Sustainability & Mixed media workshops.
Since 2007 I have continued to combine my work across the private & community based sector in Perth developing & facilitating educational life skills and creative workshops & programs with an emphasis on social responsibility and "slowing down fast fashion by re-purposing clothing & fashion designers textile & fibre waste".
I have been blessed to be part of my Local Community Arts Exhibitions over 2 years; in 2014 I was awarded The Cockburn Community & Cultural Council Inc. 2014 Public Vote Award and a Merit Certificate for my Glass entry; In 2015 I was awarded a First Prize Award for my glass jewellery entry.
MY GLASS WORK DESIGNS Using the fusing, slumping and kiln fired warm glass art-form, I'm inspired by being able to reform & recreate fractured, scrap & cut glass into functional jewellery & into small to medium functional & decorative pieces including bowls, clocks, incense holders, coasters, platters, home & gift wares.
