The core component of my graduate submission for the Bachelor of Contemporary Arts at the University of Tasmania was an experimental jewellery series “studying symbiotic relations between the brooch and garment”. Symbiosis was a feature series at the 2013 Graduate Exhibition, held at the Academy Gallery Launceston, and later re-imagined for install at Constance ARI in Hobart. This series received the Contemporary Arts Tasmania Award and the UTas award for 'Most Outstanding Graduate Portfolio'.
