The best part about being a metalsmith artist is the magic in the reanimation of the metal through hand-forming techniques. Morphing it into the delicate curves, theatrical colors, and expressive dimension that make up nature’s flora, Art Nouveau, scroll designs, and textiles. My passion for the metal arts feeds my hunger for mastering most, if not all, practices of metallurgy, beginning with jewelry smithing, blacksmithing, welding, fold forming, and metal coloration. My art is established through, first, jewelry and accessories, then gradually growing into collector’s pieces and architectural accents. My goal is to constantly challenge my knowledge and the abilities of metal to look alive, delicate and graceful.
