is an artist/jeweller/designer mostly working in the area of contemporary
She exhibits and is involved in projects with museums, galleries, and
other venues around the world. She is regularly invited to teach workshops
and give lectures.
Her work is a study into the differences between an accepted notion of
beauty or stereo-type, and something else - the search for a quality that
we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise. Walker says "I
don't want to make pieces that are easily steered through our established
channels, I want people to be forced to work on new syllogisms, analogies
and positions." She is continually pushing towards the extreme -
a method which enables an expansion in thinking and ways of working.
Walker uses a large range of materials and techniques.
She makes reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all
walks of culture and life. The pieces are often laced with references
to contemporary jewellery of the last forty years, questioning and researching
what jewellery means, what it can be.
Walker largely positions her work around the history, future, and boundaries
of jewellery. She makes pieces for the future.
"Everything is food for art".
After many years spent living in Munich, Germany, Walker is currently
based in her city of birth Wellington, New Zealand.
