Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Cleveland Heights, Ohio
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
My home studio in Cleveland Heights, Ohio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
My work is a a marriage of two distinct mediums, metal and polymer clay - the architecture of the metal giving a structure to the softer, tactile quality of the inlays, downplaying color, allowing surface texture and luminous layers to create dimension. I am drawn to texture, line and repetitive patterns in nature. I enjoy taking a pattern, abstracting it, repeating it to the point where it becomes a derived conception of its original inspiration while still celebrating the beauty of the natural element that influences it.
