I am an artist by nature. I create primarily wearable artwork. My metalwork accentuates the beauty and richness found in the world around us and I strive to express my reverence for the wonders of nature through my work.
My inspiration comes from organic matter as well as humanity and interrelatedness. I work to protect and present diverse organic forms through enhancing and responding to their natural beauty. I capture this element in my jewelry by leaving raw essentials which expose the natural awe of these forms.
