Kelly McCallum

 

Kelly McCallum graduated from the Goldsmithing department at the Royal Collage of Art in summer, 2006: a jeweller’s interest in scale and attention to detail is apparent in both her wearable objects and her sculptural pieces. Her work is influenced by both story-telling and natural history, employing Victorian taxidermy as well as insects, precious metals and other treasures from her personal collection of curiosities.

She has exhibited in many different countries, including Canada, the United States, France, Korea, The United Kingdom, and Poland, and her work has been displayed at The Victoria and Albert Museum and Liberty of London. Her Work is innovative as it refuses to fit easily into one category, it is conceptual and challenges the viewer or wearer’s assumptions and preconceptions.
