My work is a memorial to birds. It allows me to find the balance between myself and nature. The ritualised actions of the making process help me mourn the loss of kingfishers, which are hunted for the bright blue feathers used in traditional jewellery. Sometimes, people put a photograph in their jewellery to keep safe the memory of the one they love. I have used photographs of one day’s experience of bird watching in my  work. Fragments of the photos become a glimpse of the kingfisher, record its life, its existence, and become pieces that connect me with the bird.
