Artist Bio

 

 

As an artist, I am drawn to shape and texture.  It is exciting to push metal to its limits, imparting the characteristics that entice and enchant.  Each piece is handmade and infused with the creative energy that has formed it.  My mission is to inspire through the strength and beauty of my designs.

 

I work in sterling silver, fine silver, 14 karat gold-filled and accent designs with 24 karat gold.  Genuine stones are incorporated into some designs.

 

Having a natural talent for understanding the characteristics of metal and working with its fluidity, metalsmithing is the perfect outlet for my creativity. Although primarily self-taught, I have enhanced my skills with classes and workshops.  I learn best by experimenting with and challenging the metal.  Always striving to manifest my visions through the metal, I continue to bend, form and create.
