Alex Kinsley is a third generation goldsmith from Hamilton, Ontario. He apprenticed with his father for several years, after which he completed his studies at George Brown College where he graduated from the Jewellery Arts program in 2013. Alex’s work focuses on making very complex pieces using simple forms, repeated many times, to ‘grow’ the work. His inspiration is drawn, abstractly, from natural subjects.
Alex was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in 2015
