Artist’s statement

I am a visual artist and entrepreneur who is currently studying to become a commercial illustrator and animator.  I enjoy creating jewellery and other art pieces from polymer clay because the possibilities are endless in terms of shapes, patterns and colour combinations.

I am passionate about the power of art to bring beauty into our world and to evoke a myriad of feelings.  The thought that my jewellery and other art may do that for people, even in a small way, is a source of great personal satisfaction.
