Anna often investigates the idea of ‘Australian-ness’ with a fittingly cheeky sense of humour and resourcefulness. Brooches salvaging imagery from biscuit tins of the mid 20th century play with and subvert cultural stereotypes to investigate notions of national identity. Anna also works with gold, silver and precious and semi-precious stones, creating contemporary jewellery that carries traces of this character.
