About the Artist
(by Monica Moriyasu, owner of Monmo Gallery):
"A delighfully quirky sense of humour and gung-ho attitude is what sets Vicky T. Hunt and her jewellery apart.
Her professional training as an engineer (Masters degree - Oxford University), chartered accountant and scuba instructor shows itself in weird and wonderful ways. You can see the engineer's mind and mermaid tendancies at work in her delicately aquatic, 'engineered' and captivating jewellery.
A love of exploration of the natural world, above ground and under the ocean, has seen Vicky travel to all corners of the globe.
Vicky's work shows an 'anything goes' attitude where she explores her medium with felted wool, pearls and fossils, to name but a few of the multi-media she incorporates into her work.
Vicky's increasingly complex combination of materials and organic shapes delights the viewer and takes them to places previously unexplored. Vicky describes herself as the 'redheaded, tattooed, scuba diving cephalopod lover' who creates under the name Ginga Squid. Her large underwater paintings and delicate beaded jewellery are as colourful as she is."
