Materials and technique: My art practice incorporates the technique of metal collage. The images that I find are either pre-printed onto metal souvenirs, such as biscuit and tea tins, or I print them myself using the technique of sublimation printing. The images are cut out, rearranged and reassemble using cold joining techniques.

Ideas and inspiration: In my current practice I make jewellery and objects that intend an examination of cultural identity. I use collage to rearrange and reconstruct the images of kitsch Australiana found on old biscuit tins to encourage an investigation of colonialism and multiculturalism.
