From a multi-dimensional family of painters, musicians, builders, and pencil artists, I’ve been a student of creativity from birth. Art was always my biggest interest, and I paid a lot of attention to design… of any type.
After an intense emotional experience, I began to play with metal and stones in an attempt to heal and cope with what I was going through. I had never attempted to make jewelry before, and had never imagined it would become my life’s passion.
As a self-taught artist, it has been a challenging journey to be able to create all of the images that float through my head. My insatiable desire to learn more, create more, and focus my spirit, has given me the courage to experiment with the materials I love in any possible way I can in order to turn my emotions and my expression into something tangible and beautiful.
Metalsmithing has been a huge step in my creativity, and sparks my mind, my heart, and inspiration every day. The work that comes through me embodies the transformations of our human experiences and is raw, uninhibited, energetic, fierce, and graceful.
