About the Art:

I am an artist/educator and a perpetual student, always striving to learn more of my chosen craft. I find I am a better teacher when also a student: My students drive me to think about my own work in greater detail as I answer questions of how and why.

I began metalwork in 1976. Despite brief dalliances with other media, the metal and fire always call me back. It is my breath: I can go for a time without it, but too long away from the bench, I start to falter.

I design texture-rich, structural, one-of-a-kind statement jewelry, weaving together geometric and architectural forms found in the natural world. The work is primarily crafted in sterling and fine silver, accented with gold, gemstones and pearls. I repurpose scrap silver into design elements for several collections to reduce my environmental impact.

My art invites you to confidently present your unapologetic best self.
