About

I am an artist who grew up in the South moved to the Pacific North West and recently moved back to the South to be with family. I lived in the PNW (Pacific North West) for 15 years. The PNW is a raw, turbulent, and wild place. And beautiful. When I think of the land back east, I think of it as a grandmother. Someone old and friendly making cookies. When I think of the land out West, I think of a teenager going through puberty. It makes sense geologically. The land back East is older and more settled. The mountains there have settled down to around 3 to 5 thousand feet. Mere foothills by North West standards. My art is so closely tied to nature, dreams, visions, and myth. I feel a deep connection where ever I am located. Each design that I create is in a way a reverberation(if you will) of the landscape and vibe within me.

I also love metals. They seem so inexorable and stern. And yet,(like some people) if treated right, they literally become putty and melt in your hands. Well maybe not in your hands. They melt in a ceramic crucibles, duh!

Metal is so impressionable that I can gather dried leaves while hiking and bring them back to roller press them into the metal. The intricate lacework of leaf veins will impress right into the cold hard metal! I also cast real twigs and seeds, and even a small onion into silver.

Sometimes I feel as if we as humans have lost or forgotten about the divinity within nature and within ourselves. I have always felt a calling to bring to light that which is hidden, and that which is forgotten.
