McRae Krista

Krista’s work combines and draws attention to the creative process that exists in both art and jewellery making. Having studied a Bachelor of Fine Art at VCA as well as Engineering Technology (Jewellery) at NMIT, her carefully conceived and composed pieces employ precious and semi-precious metals and gems, drawing attention to their material form and also their design and construction. Her work has been exhibited in both Australia and New Zealand.

Krista enjoys the process and meanings that come from leaving marks on a metal surface.
