This work has been made in series for specific exhibitions in Art Galleries.
Guest Artist, Bannockburn Arts Weekend
I explored, collected materials and took photos at the Bannockburn Tailings, and used this material to create a series of work that was shown at this arts weekend.
Group Exhibition at Quoil Gallery, Wellington, June 2015
The Jewellery Box
Queenstown Art Centre group exhibition 2014.
Out Of Hand
A Joint exhibition with Painter Beverly Claridge at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery, March 2012.
In this exhibition I returned to sculpture. I started with the title of the exhibition, and imagines what metal would be like if it became sentient. It told the story of a ring that grew it's own mind and began to evolve.
All work in brass, soldered and forged.
Photos by Steven Woller.
Edge of the World Guest Artist
I was privileged to be a guest artist at Waikawa's Edge of the World exhibition in February 2011. I spent time In Waikawa and used materials and images gathered from there for this series of work.

Our Artists, QT Contemporary
I made six necklaces - three are more developed versions of my stone necklaces, two are collaborations with my partner Brendon Jaine (using glass pieces he had cut and tumbled, and I drilled and composed along with my handmade silver beads) and one silver necklace in the water flea shape with gold flecks.

Where The Gorse Blooms Pale... And Beyond

Not really an exhibition, but and exhibition's worth of jewellery commission by a Southland farmer for members of his family. Materials and imagery sourced from the family farm and other places special to them.
Now We are Five
Quadrant Gallery's Fifth Birthday Exhibition, October 2012. Imagery and materials sourced from Cannibal Bay in the Catlins.
A New Line
This jewellery was made for the jewellery/poetry event "A New Line" hosted by the Casslleberg Trust in the Hocken Theatre, Dunedin in October 2010. I was paired with poet David Eggleton and I made jewellery based on his poem " Orogenesis".
I graduated from Otago Polytechnic's Bachelor of Fine Arts four year Degree in December 2002. This is work from my graduation exhibition.
