Katrina Tyler’s practice spans jewellery, objects and public art, with a predominant focus on the materials and techniques of silver and metalsmithing. Katrina’s work explores real and imagined sites of intersection and co-habitation between natural and urban habitats and offers a moment for reflection and contemplation about our place within the urban ecology.
Katrina has public art commissions in collaboration with UAP in Hong Kong, Beijing, Darwin and Brisbane, has exhibited jewellery and small sculpture in solo, group and award exhibitions. She makes handcrafted jewellery for exhibition and limited ranges. In 2008 Katrina undertook a 3 month Access Residency at JamFactory in Adelaide and in 2014 was awarded an Artstart Grant from the Australia Council.
