I grew up spending a lot of time in the outdoors. Through hiking and camping I acquired a love of nature, and through my early artistic influences, I began to express that passion through my artwork. Creating art with my hands gives me the pleasure of creating something tangible.
At first that tangible expression took the form of clay, but as the years passed, I turned to the small-scale expression that jewelry allows. My “wearable art” focuses on sterling sliver and precious gemstones, both drawn from the earth I love.
