All of my life I have been intrigued by patterns found in nature. From weathervanes to wedding rings, my work is dimensional in nature. My recent bodies of work involve translating nature into jewelry to capture the complex and subtle textures from organic objects, and designing a self-defense jewelry line called 'Dress-2-Kill'.

Using patinas, enamels, or torched heat patinas to discover the richness in finishes that cannot be achieved with a high sheen polish.

My favorite subjects to explore are animals, birds, landscapes, flora, still life, gesture, and fantasy. Combining copper, bras, and sterling to employ different color and patina finishes on my work.
