ABOUT NICOLE JAKINS
As a nature lover, my work is constantly inspired by the beauty, fragility and biodiversity of Australian native flora and fauna.
Having lived in the bush for nearly 10 years, off the grid and in remote locations, I have experienced the privilege of being surrounded by wildlife in its natural state.
My sculptural and commercial art works are made as sustainable as possible, using salvaged and discarded materials, found objects and commercially recycled sterling silver.
I attained a Visual Arts Degree with Honours - majoring in Sculpture at The University of Newcastle, then became a long term advocate for the Arts through my position as Director of the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery, before embracing work as a Studio Artist.
