Metal point (24 carat gold, pure silver)

I was drawn to the tangled mess of the old Monstera, then looked closer to see a hive of activity. Ants, bugs, birds and bees were seeking a safe haven within, going about their day as we do.

I am obsessed with nature and our natural world: the detail, the elements that are missed by a fleeting glance. I invite the viewer to look deeper and draw them in to offer another level of engagement.

There are hidden secrets within the complexity of the work. Look closely and you may see a little bird or frog within.
