Art to accessorise the eco-conscious
I am an artist currently based in Adelaide Hills, South Australia. I am passionate about reducing waste; my ethos is to create unique and practical objects from otherwise unloved material, sourcing responsibly from my surroundings. Everything old is new again, each product is an individual piece of heart.
I enjoy simple and clean designs, showcasing each material’s flavourful characteristics of yesteryear. Born and raised in Singapore, I have gathered life’s experiences from Switzerland, Sweden and the United States of America since 2004.
In the beginning of 2015 I embarked on printmaking. Merging my interests in graphics and upcycling, I hand-print vintage and reclaimed textiles, featuring my furry muse, Pickle the Birman-Ragdoll cat. Pickled Pockets is a collection of work that includes hand-sewn dresses with pockets and Pickle-printed wares.
As an independent maker I learn by doing. Each creation is hand-crafted lovingly by myself alongside several cups of tea, journeying from my home to yours.
