|Self-taught metalsmith, custom jeweler, and enamelist creating 2D/3D works using hand fabrication, casting, and/or forging techniques to create singular, emotive works for wear or display. Gallery owner and volunteer advocate for the arts.
I have vivid dreams and recreate them in metal. My work is individual in nature, expressed in exquisite detail. Jewelry includes custom alternative wedding and engagement rings and a retail jewelry line. Metal objects include copper sculpture and tiny boxes. I make kiln-fired enamel paintings on copper. Ancient metalworking techniques are applied to old, new, and recycled materials. Semi-precious stones, pearls, enamels and found objects are added as embellishments to jewelry. I aim to employ responsible studio practices and use recycled materials in my work as much as possible. I attempt to create a work that inspires the viewers own narrative as to their meaning.
Key jewelry making, metalsmithing and design knowledge as been gained from instructors Michael David Sturlin, John Cogswell, Juan Carolos Caballero-Perez, Angela Bubash and Marilyn Smith.
