Cheryl Sills achieved a BA (Hons) in Art and Design, specializing in jewellery and metalwork at Dundee University in Scotland. She is now based in Auckland.
"I enjoy the process of making; of building and constructing three dimensional objects. My current body of work explores the faceted form. I am constantly trying to evolve this concept by using alternative materials and inventing different methods of construction."
Cheryl has always been fascinated by diamond forms, the facets, the reflection of light and their status in terms of monetary value. She likes the idea of trying to recreate them in other materials, particularly in silver and gold. She also enjoys adding colour to the forms by industrially powdercoating them or creating them out of laminated coloured acrylic.
