Each of my compositions is a mantra inspired by flowers and rivets. In my studio, I find rhythm in sawing, drilling and assembling—meditative tasks repeated over and over. The absence of certain elements, like color, allows the form and the movement of the work to be emphasized. I am informed by the subtle beauty in nature. I try to mimic and stylize the patterns and repetition in plant and flowers. My most recent body of work combines precious metal with simple line and shape,to create petite metal bouquets and floral landscapes that have a strong, yet delicate and feminine presence.
I received my BFA in Crafts/Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2006. I recently moved to Providence, RI where I work as a full time studio artist making both production jewelry and one-of-a-kind pieces.
