About

A Force Of Nature: Fascinated by the natural processes of growth and decay, I push boundaries to capture the bold and fragile essence of life.

I love the way metal feels, its weight, its changing temperatures, its smoothness and textures, and the way it moves, with each hammer blow shifting the molecules mathematically, the way it takes color from the torch or patina and enamel. I love its permanence, how it will last longer than any of us. I love the way my ideas evolve as I create new work. Each piece is an exploration in form and represents the beauty of the natural world in a lasting way.

I've been exploring natural forms for as long as I can remember. I've always made jewelry, as a child using found objects like bottle caps, as an adult with lost wax casting, precious metal clay, fabrication and most recently foldforming. I'm inspired by colors, shapes, and textures found in nature. I like to play with color that mimics moss, lichens, leaves, blooms, pods, and buds. I enjoy incorporating natural elements like shells, pearls, coral, fiber, glass, etc., but also like vintage glass, stones, and unusual beads.

Some of my work is available for purchase at Pearl Gallery & Framing. Please check with the store to see what's available.
