Artist bio: Virginia is an emerging Australian designer and maker of contemporary art jewellery. Her work explores the tenuousness of our relationship with nature and the critical importance of embedding respect, connection, and nurture at its core. Her pieces seek to achieve this by focussing on the quiet and restorative details of nature’s most intricate forms, acting to transform these moments into tangible, wearable objects that speak to the symbiotic relationship between wearer and the natural world.
Since commencing self-guided study in 2013 she has participated in numerous exhibitions in the United States (Brooklyn Metalworks – NYC JEWELRY WEEK 2019), and Australia (including juried exhibitions with the Australian Design Centre Sydney 2019 (highly commended mention) & 2022). Virginia was also awarded a placement in the SNAG JEWELRY AND METALS SURVEY 2019.
Virginia is represented in galleries in Australia and New Zealand.
