Hello!

Inspiration: Growing up in the country as a free roaming wild child, as long as I can remember I have been called by the mysteries of the natural world. Rabbit prints in the snow, an empty locust's shell hanging from the bark of a tree, a snake's skin shed & left behind. The sacred geometry of a crystal. By rocks & rust & treasures buried deep in the ground. In attempt to answer this ancient call, I began exploring ways to craft metals around these specimans to create talismans that I am so happy to be able to share with you.

My metal work follows this call, trapping goedes & naturally formed rocks & minerals. casting found objects in homage to nature's divine order & perfection. I enjoy making things that look as though they may have been unearthed in anthropological dig or ferried up from wreck at the bottom of the ocean…

Allowing you to create your own magical story and meaning around each piece.

skool: I have no formal training aside from some commmunity classes here & there....whew, it's been a toil learning to work metal through books & trial & error.....thanks to all the generous people who ahve helped me along the way with tteaching & tips & support.

Me: I currently live in sunny southern california I love sunshine & playing outside! My creations are made in my studio in the back of my exciting new shop "Goldmine" located in Glendale CA (if you are local, please message me & come by for a visit!) It's a lovely artist collective/vintage shop filled with treasures which I have the pleasure of spending my days crafting & dreaming with my dear friend & co-owner "Lesli" and the sweetest little tan man "Chico" the chihuahua!



I also enjoy a lively career as a wardrobe stylist / costumer for film and television.

I look forward to the day when revenue from the sales of my creations alone sustain me!
