- "As a young child I had severe vision limitations so I related to the world through colors and texture. Since elements in nature often surface in my work "transition" is a recurring theme. The etched pieces reflect change, grace in cycles of growth and eventual decline. In these pieces I strive to capture the fragility of life belied by the strength of materials used.
I love making jewelry and see my work in jewelry as the culmination of a strong background in metal art, papermaking, and printmaking with a rather boldly ephemeral personal aesthetic. This results in sculptural pieces that can appear quite substantial but are light in weight and comfortable to wear."
