Jewelry and Enamels

My work has always been influenced by nature and my environment in some way and is sometimes narrative in theme. I have included stories about a few of the works within the photo album below. Media includes metals and mixed media.

Anna,

I left a comment but it isn't showing up so just in case it does, this is the second one.  I just wanted to say thank you for your kind words about my work and to say that I also checked out your work and think it is terrific.  I especially like the castings from the grape seeds and your rings.

Starting Points

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design.  After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked.  I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower.
