Jewelry · Metal · Sculpture
My creative practice combines mastery of a strong craft tradition with contemporary approaches to blend ideas, modes of expression, and good design principles – form, line, rhythm and space, that are both functional and genuine. The beauty of metal in its various states amazes me. I am a curious person, which means I easily get absorbed with the qualities and physics of materials, technique, and surface textures. I focus on representing a visual language that is on the edge of imagination and creativity, speaks to truth in materials, or tells a story by capturing moments or compositional elements. For me constructing a three dimensional object is personal, interactive, and reflective as I push the boundaries of jewelry construction to fine art – sculptural in nature and many times unconventional, but designed for the body as a wearable, which means something to the wearer and in turn is viewed by the observer.
