Born in 1974, Ayelet studied at Grennan Mills Craft School, Glasgow School of Art, and NCAD, Dublin, graduating with a BA in 1996, and MA in 2009. She was surrounded by independent, free thinking women growing up. This has shaped her work greatly, the strong female form being central to her artwork, embellished by strong decorative aspects of colour, pattern and texture. From establishing her practise in 1999, she has worked in clay, bronze, concrete and even edible materials like chocolate, diversifying into other mediums including painting, print and illustration in more recent years. Her work has been commissioned both publicly and privately, and collections include the OPW, The Irish Embassy in London, Mason, Hayes and Curren and Limerick City Gallery. She has exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Crafts Fair, the National Museum of Ireland, Gormleys Fine Art, Sculpture in Context, the RDS National Craft Awards, The Millcove Gallery and Farmleigh among numerous others, in Ireland and abroad.
