About

Repurposing found objects and upcycling discarded materials into one of a kind pieces of wearable and fine art

I have a great appreciation for the natural sciences; I feel that in this modern age we need reminders of the beauty and mystery of the natural world. I don't try and portray the obvious or even reality as I see it. I strive to express a unique viewpoint and a sense of mystery.

When I approach a new series I want to engross myself in it completely. I spend a large amount of time exploring, studying and researching my subject matter and how to best represent it. I don't feel I can do my subject justice until I know it intimately. Therefore I do everything possible to immerse myself in it.

My jewelry is inspired by natural history and a desire to repurpose and reveal the beauty in uncommon objects. I often use bullet shells, fossils, bones, feathers, copper and semi precious gemstones in my designs.

I have participated in many gallery, and alternative space exhibitions and my artwork has been exhibited nationwide with emphasis on the West Coast. I was born, raised and currently reside in the California Bay Area.
