Chloe Waddell gained her Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours from Sydney College of the Arts in 2005. In 2008, she co-founded Breathing Colours Gallery – a multi disciplinary exhibition and retail space with a focus on contemporary jewellery. A move to Melbourne in 2011 saw her concentrating on her own artistic practice again and she became a regular stallholder at Melbourne’s many arts and crafts markets including a weekly position at the Rose Street Artist Market. Chloe returned to Sydney at the start of 2014 to take up the position of Jewellery Technical Officer at Sydney College of the Arts. She moved to Brisbane at the start of 2015 to welcome her daughter Rho into the world and after a year’s maternity leave is excited to spend 2016 making lots of great art and jewellery.
Since graduating from SCA, Chloe has regularly exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions. As well as her technical teaching at SCA, she has also taught jewellery classes to both adults and children at community college and independent art schools; and since the start of 2011, Chloe has been a committee member of the NSW arm of Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia, first as secretary, then treasurer.
