artist statement

I am a metalsmith/jeweller working with copper, silver, gold and natural gemstones to make jewellery and small sculptural pieces. My original designs are forged, fused, fabricated, reticulated, embossed or cast using the lost-wax process. My experience as a printmaker and ecologist influences my designs which often incorporate a variety of textures and references to natural objects. My work consists of several production lines, commissions and one-of-a-kind pieces that respond to materials, techniques and design challenges that intrigue me.
