Kelly McDonald lives in Wellington after moving from Australia ten years ago and has a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Jewellery & Object Design from Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney University.


Her jewellery and object -making focuses around the exploration of materials and their previous human interventions as a counterpoint to mass production, built in obsolescence and 3-D printers. She was a jewellery tutor at Whitireia, New Zealand until 2019. 


Kelly exhibited Penumbra Antumbra at AVID Gallery in February 2015 and as part of the Handshake2 Project  Mentors and Mentees  exhibition  at AVID in September 2015.
