Simone Alesich is a mixed media artist and jeweller. She works in a range of textiles, wood and botanic sculpture, photography and collage, using various natural and found materials. Her jewellery designs incorporate silver and other metals with organic and Australian native plant motifs, as well as bright and playful designs in recycled plastics and polymer clay.

Simone is passionate about sustainability, and inspired by natural forms as well as Japanese aesthetics. With a background in anthropology, her artworks are informed by the diverse art and cultural practices of the places where she has lived and travelled. Her artworks often explore the theme of imagined worlds, as well as reflecting on the natural environment.

Simone has led and helped organise numerous community art projects in Brunswick, including a Lent Project and an Advent Project in 2016, the ‘What is Creativity’ exhibition in 2017, the 'Let the Earth Speak' exhibition in 2019 and the 'Emergence' exhibition in 2021. She was a participant in the Brunswick Studio Walk in 2018. Simone was a project space artist at NorthCity4 in 2018-19. She is currently part of the Pink Ember art community. She welcomes opportunities to collaborate with other artists and community groups.
