A World of possibilities
Steven Worthington was born in Brisbane in 1973. Educated in Sydney, after school and completing his electronics apprenticeship he began a career as an electronics technician. In typical Aussie fashion, Steven had a two-year working holiday in England, with side trips to the rest of Europe, enjoying the opportunity to explore other cultures and countries. All through his school and career Steven was always creating things with his hands and would tinker with small arty projects when time allowed. In 2013 Steven made the big leap to pursue a career as an artist. He has since completed a diploma of visual arts at the CIT and is now in his second year of a double degree at ANU, studying full time in the gold and silver-smithing and the sculpture workshops. His interests are diverse, and he is still exploring the possibilities of his art though jewellery and sculpture.

There is something honest about just making stuff, it doesn't even have to have a reason or a purpose, or even be all that good. The act of making something yourself, because you want to make something is so rewarding. It's even more rewarding if others like it enough to want it too.
