Jules McCrae likes to describe herself as a functional artist. She has spent most of her working years in the arts. Beginning with an Associate Diploma in Commercial Art, followed by a trade in traditional (handpaint) signwriting which lead her to working in the Trade Show industry where she discovered prop making giving her the opportunity to learn many techniques which helped to expand her skills and knowledge. She now works alongside her husband Luke as a Blacksmith, Jules loves turning cold steel into flowing functional pieces.
She also enjoys the challenge of incorporating recycled items, especially in Wearable Art, hoping to provoke an awareness of the interaction and consequences of people and their environment.
