I have twice attended the Dunedin School of Art, first graduating in 1991 with a Diploma in Printmaking and again in 2005 with a Degree in Jewellery and Metalsmithing.

A collector and hoarder by nature, I have always been drawn to objects that carry a sense of history. Dunedin’s second hand shops provide rich hunting grounds for overlooked treasure that form the basis of much of my work. Tucked away in my studio I bring together the skills I was taught as a child around the kitchen table with those later learnt at the jeweller’s bench.

My Grandmother, Rhona Margaret Grimmett, who first taught me to sew.
