I am a trade trained jeweller and my work reflects the relationships between jewellery and the human form and it investigates the dynamic connection between adornment, creative expression, daily rituals and embedded memory. The objects are to be worn and enjoyed, uniting the maker, the wearer and the viewer. I offer workshops at my home studio for up to 6 participants and have run workshops in remote locations teaching the basics of jewellery making. Commissions are always welcome and I am passionate about recycling your old items into new wearable pieces that still hold all the emotional and sentimental meaning to the owner.

Copy writing and/or creating content can be overwhelming and frustrating. It's time consuming.
You have to come up with content that will reach, connect, and engage people and deliver value, while at the same time supporting your goals.
Ideally, you would think that you and/or your team are the best people to craft your content because…
– you know your clients and who your target market is
– you know all the benefits your products or services offer
– you know your stuff – in fact you're AWESOME at what you do
Getting all your knowledge out of your head into a strategic content plan and then creating that content is hard. Especially when you and your team have other things to focus on.
This is where I come in.
It’s my job to pull all that information out of your head AND to work with you to craft content for you, so that it delivers value AND supports your goals.

I paint portraits, landscapes and nature scenes on canvas from photos. I enjoy playing with colour, texture and composition to convey emotion and personality with every piece. Commissions are welcome.
I create large metal sculptures from sheet metal and figurative pieces from scrap metal. No two pieces are the same.
Creating brings me joy and I love being immersed in the process.
I also occasionally facilitate art workshops which are a lot of fun and you get to take home you're own artwork.

Hi, I'm Rhi!
I'm a copywriter, content marketer and photographer. I can help you create copy and content that reflects your brand and attracts your ideal customers.
I have more than 10 years of experience in marketing, advertising, social media, journalism and communications.
I’ve worked across banking, finance, higher education, motorsport, and community organisations.
I volunteer with the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers and my career highlight to date is live tweeting the Bathurst 12 Hour from the official Twitter handle.
You can find me on Instagram @rhixseven

Growing up in Albury, I always had a pencil or brush in hand. During one phase, I drew only clowns. I painted my bedroom curtains in Ken Done brights. I could knit before I could read.
So becoming an artist wasn’t a choice. What I do is who I am.
These days—after a long, acclaimed career as a residential, commercial and retail interior designer whose Sydney home starred in a 10-page House and Garden feature called ‘Sarah Stamm’s Design Tricks’—that means I do what I love every day.
I’m the multi creative founder, art director and principal artist of global-but-local Australian business Salisbury and Maude. I’m an artistic thought leader, guest speaker and podcast guest many times over, who has studied metal work, woodwork, printmaking, ceramics, photography, drawing, graphic design and textiles (my university major.)
I’m an artist of repute who handmakes one-off beautiful treasures from Australian merino wool, international fabrics and faux botanicals. My pieces are bought by a global audience, featured in national magazines and newspapers (Home Beautiful, Country Style, the Australian Women’s Weekly, The Australian Newspaper) and collected by actors, influencers and TV lifestyle hosts.
I don’t take commissions. No orders. No website. No need—I make just one thing at a time, using my original designs and patterns. When it’s done, I post images to social media and the piece finds a new home in minutes.
Being coveted by collectors is a lovely place to be, eight years after I started making quilts for friends from inherited fabric. I work seasonally—Scottish tartan quilts in winter, wreaths at Christmas—and in between I make with complete creative freedom; what I want, when I want and how I want, once I dream it up.
My ability to create by my own hand means more because I nearly lost it at age 22. A bike courier plowed into me, and my drawing hand and interior design career nearly died. Surgeons saved both, yet the challenge of permanent disability—a 20 per cent loss of strength—remains.
Things I love: classic style, flat shoes, life in a glorious country Victorian town, orchestral music, my husband and two adult children. The memory of my Beechworth homewares shop and design studio I ran for eight years, moving through life’s phases with integrity, keeping customers happy.
I learned the power of exemplary service during my years in corporate services at David Jones—I worked by day, studied by night! Shopping for major corporate customers and the influential, rich and famous taught me to deliver on promises.
I am honoured to work with Albury City Council as a selected member of the Albury PumpHouse Think Tank in 2023, our very own nurturing, empowering and collaborative space for artists of our region to flourish.
Yes, I can still design you a house. But I’d rather make you a smaller, more personal work of art that you can treasure forever.
To view my work and enjoy stories of my rural life outside of Beechworth, overlooking the Victorian Alps, I welcome you to follow my Instagram/ Facebook account. The best way to contact me is to send me a Direct Message (DM)/ Private Message (PM) via my social media accounts.
