One person's trash is another's treasure.

This piece is one of my latest works. Inspired by a discarded powerpoint found at Reverse Garbage; a never ending source of inspiration for me. One person's trash is another's treasure! If you don't believe me stay tuned for more of my work. The majority of it is made from recycled materials and questions peoples perceptions of what is valuable.

The Box Project

I was recently invited by a good friend to be part of an interesting project; 'The Box Project'.

Jasmine Matus has invited 20 contemporary jewellery artists to be involved in the project. The artists will receive a small box in the mail; each box containing materials with which to construct between 1 and 3 wearable pieces. The finished works will be showed in an exhibition at Keeper Gallery, Gaffa, from the 18th - 30th of November, 2010.

To find out more about this project go to http://theboxproject.tumblr.com/

I'm thrilled to be involved in what’s going to be a really fun project. Thanks Jasmine!

I got my box in the mail last week; do you want to see what was inside?

This image is a drawing I recently bought by the amazingly talented Michele Morcos. She's having an exhibition in a couple of weeks showcasing the works created during her 6 month residency at Primrose studios

The exhibition is called Spirit of Place and it will be showing from the 5th-11th of June at Primrose Gallery.

I'm not sure where this blog is going or even where to begin. I have to start somewhere, so... I've decided on this quote from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' which was sent to me by my lovely father.

' "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.'

It seems quite fitting, don't you think?
