Often as I am working in the studio at my bench my mind opens up and wonders to past events and memories that evoke deep nostalgia. I seem to be a locked in to thinking this way and being in a constant cycle of melancholy. It's not hard to see why my current series continues to explore these themes.

Today I couldn't stop thinking about how time is racing along and that I cannot possibly fit all the things I want to make on do into the little time I have left. I don't mean that to sound too morbid or anything. It's just that I want to do a lot of things like start my own business, spend more time making art jewellery pieces, researching areas such as melancholy, reading, exploring nature...so many things and so little time.

The detail of the piece pictured is of Bidding Adieu and is a piece that I think strongly evokes melancholy. There is a beauty in this piece that hints at something past; perhaps something that was never even there to begin with.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I create and exhibit art. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. I acknowledge that I work and live on country on which Members and Elders of The Wurundjeri people and their forebears have been custodians for many centuries and on which Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. I acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
