After graduating from a Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT University in 2017, Jade started a new venture called Leaf and Folk. Turning handpicked botanicals into wearable art and objects. 

As a multidisciplinary artist, the natural landscape has always been a focus within her work. Translating natural and reoccurring forms, line and colour into abstract sculptures, printmaking and gold and silver smithing. In 2015 Jade began experimenting with resin and pigments, creating small objects and paintings. This eventuated into the infusion of handpicked botanicals, which turned into about 6 different pieces of jewellery. Not thinking much of them until they all sold at a small exhibition mid 2017.
This sparked the humble beginning of Leaf and Folk. 

Flowers have always been a way to connect to both of Jade's grandmothers. Through Leaf and Folk she is able to connect these precious memories, into sentimental objects and wearable art. Through a slow and loving process, Jade handpicks every flower, which is then dried, infused into resin, sanded then polished. Creating unique pieces encapsulating cherished moments. 

Thankyou to all of the beautiful souls who have supported my work, I am so humbled by your response. I am so excited to see where this journey takes me. 


 

International Chic with a Québécois Touch.

 

After years of practice, Romy has found that gently taming and suggesting shape yields the most elegant results. Even when she started small with wallets back in 1987, she always matched her meticulousness with curiosity. Travelling around the globe, she has studied various techniques and designs that have helped her cultivate a singular yet international style. Today, she has a few apprentices of her own and spends most of her time crafting with them in her Montréal studio. She still makes time to learn new techniques and exhibits at tradeshows all around the world.
