There was always something creative going on in my home growing up, so have naturally been guided towards life as a maker of things.
i studied visual arts at Whitireia Community Polytechnic majoring in fine metals under the excellent tutelage of Peter Deckers graduating in 2001.
My Grandfather, Morrie Win worked as self employed manufacturing jeweller in Porirua. Learning the trade as a disabled serviceman after WW2. His work holds huge inspiration for me and is a part of my love of jewellery making and design.
Jewellery can take on personal value that far exceeds that of which it is made,in that respect jewellery as a medium utterly appealing.
