GENEVIEVE HOWARD

Genevieve is an award winning Jewellery artist from Dublin, Ireland. She is also an accomplished musician and is interested in translating pieces of music into wearable forms. She combines new technologies such as laser cutting with traditional handmade and metalwork techniques. Well-known figures who have collected her work include American collector Deedie Rose and Sabina Higgins, wife of Ireland’s President, Michael D. Higgins

Artist's Statement

Genevieve's current work is inspired by songs that have enriched and given meaning to her life. Howard translates scores of music into her own form of graphic notation, which she then stacks like staves and rolls into scrolls to create wearable musical sculptures. The main material of her work is paper—she uses a high quality Japanese linen cardstock which gives a beautiful finish to each piece. The paper is laser-cut and carefully assembled to mirror the musical sequence of each score.

Howard recently graduated with a BA in Metals and Jewellery from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been recognised and collected by high end galleries such as Gallery Marzee in The Netherlands, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the Mari Funaki Gallery in Australia.
