Many Faces

As a gay, person of color, most of my life has been a game of translation. I looked at life (and myself) through the lens of others. In my most recent series of self-portraits, I seek to explore my identity…

BLOOM

BLOOM plays with the concept of natural flow as it permeates our world. I observe this flow in the natural, digital, and spiritual worlds. These worlds are merged by the hand to form a transcendental experience. Strings of silicone move…

Ess Stitch Brooch

Growing up I heard stories about how my grandmother supported her son, my father, during the Second World War with her needlework. Crafts such as weaving, quilt making and sewing were often designated as “women’s work” leaving much nobler artistic…

Garden Reflections: Rain Forest

Earrings, Sorrel Van Allen; Pendant, Pamela Ritchie

Pendant Winner of the 2017 Governor General’s Saidye Bronfman Award, Pamela Ritchie’s work celebrates the concentrating effect of detail, and the paradox that an abundance of ideas, form, and pattern can be encapsulated in very small objects. She was strongly…

Wedding Ring

My recent work explores human relations and their inherent complexities. I believe that absurd extremes can make us see complex issues in a different context and, on occasion, be amusing. I frequently use humor to address issues that I see…

Creating Connections

Pushing, merging, and intertwining the boundaries of jewelry, sculpture, and art is something that I have always been compelled to do since my start in metals and jewelry three years ago. I create sculptural jewelry that is worn on the…

Draped Connections Necklace

The Draped Connections Necklace is part of my Connections Series. I’m exploring both the connections and the lines of connections. It’s made with recycled Nespresso coffee capsules, polymer and extruded rubber.

Seed Starter

Architectonic Ring

For this sculptural platinum ring, I was inspired by Futurist architecture, not one specific building but more an aesthetic. Architects such as Adrian Wilson, Charles Lucian, and Vincent Callebaut have come up with some futurist concepts of what the green…

KiTTi3_B00M-B00M_WiNGZ

My work is a response to lived experiences and how they materialize as the fragmented narratives that define my Trans Non-Binary identity. Through iterative process, automatic drawing, reactive construction, and colorful surface treatments, I balance opposing entities that address the…

Astral Passage

Listening is Harder

Happiness is Regulated by Your Success

My work combines traditional fabrication techniques and limited production-manufacturing tools. I often think of my creative practice as an exercise in discursive design. Discursive design treats objects principally as transmitters of substantive ideas, rather than instruments of utility. I see…

Sewer, trash and street02

The inspiration for this work comes from a Japanese novel No Longer Human. The story chronicles the miserable and despairing life stories of Ōba Yōzō from his early childhood to his late twenties. However, I find his sensitive, pure, and…
