Angel or Demon is a brooch made in a Victorian style. The image is of my mother taken when she was just 6 years old. Although she looks angelic in her lovely Easter outfit, her expression tells a very different story.
My work is an outward representation of an inner journey to find beauty, joy and usefulness in the unconventional. Using metals and found objects I challenge preconceived ideas of who and what has worth because what you see is often not what you get.
