Amelia Marks’ work is inspired by biological and botanical illustrations and demonstrates a strong sense of structure and order balanced with the softer, organic forms of nature. Working across a range of precious and alternative materials, colour is a major element of her work and pieces often incorporate sublimation printed aluminium, enamel, or paint. Amelia creates joyous and elegant contemporary designs that surprise and delight in their elegance, comfort and wearability.
Amelia received an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery and Object Design at Melbourne Polytechnic in 2016, graduating with the Arbor Mentorship award, and was the recipient of the 2017 Design Institute of Australia’s Australasian Graduate of the Year Award (Jewellery and Objects) for her graduate collection. Amelia has participated in group exhibitions both in Australia and internationally and works from her studio in inner west Melbourne.
