Shelley MacDonald

Shelley MacDonald earned her B.F.A in Jewellery Design and metal smithing from NSCAD University in Halifax N.S in 2010. Shelley started her own business in 2005; Shelley has been living in the Yukon since October 2011.

Shelley interprets natural elements in metal to obscure the connection between botanical forms and the body. This work is the product of her study of orchids and other flora, which displays tenacity over urban structures. She challenges herself to represent this relationship in metal. The rendered organic elements fit the lines and shape of the body, while maintaining the strength inherent in metal.

The hen and chick plant inspired her, with its textures and vivid colors. Shelley refers to its resilience and ability to thrive in harsh climates. In her study of orchids, the complex, almost mechanical structures remain the core of her investigation.

Within this framework she is able to fully appreciate the complexities and beauty in nature, which she has discovered is her source.
