I have been a studio artist all of my life. I grew up in an artistic family that spent a lot of time in the outdoors hiking and camping. I acquired a love of nature, evident in my choice of subject matter. My early medium was clay, but later my interest evolved into working with metal and gemstones. Creating art with my hands gives me the pleasure of creating something tangible. I am challenged by the endless variety of techniques and possibilities in the metal arts. I make everything that you see in my shop by hand, taking care to source the best materials and quality gemstones. Every piece is made with careful attention to detail. Everyday holds the promise of a new discovery. I hope that these discoveries are as enjoyable to you as they are to me.
