I have always loved being creative. Looking back, I guess my entire life has been spent exploring various creative avenues. From many years in the culinary arts, to working in a stained glass studio, I have a strong desire to envision and create things. I love the challenges and rewards involved as a result of combining art and science.
Creating one of a kind jewelry pieces however, is my true calling. The overall theme of my work is nature. I love to think about the things I admire in God's creation and then envision how I might transfer my ideas onto metal and turn them into wearable objects. From trees to fish, mountains to seasides, I am drawn to recreate them in miniature.
Sometimes I am inspired by the aesthetic value of different textures and contemporary designs, and this is reflected in my work as well. I am ever exploring my concepts in a variety of new ways and combinations. I desire that my pieces bring as much pleasure to the wearer as I received in making them.
