What media do you work with?
vitrius enamel, metals, found objects, stones

For me, the creative process is about making connections between past and present, between art and emotion, mixing styles and materials to re-imagine what is possible. I use found objects and unique components to create jewelry that is contemporary, yet has a sense of history.

I think of myself as both an artist and designer, however, design is my worldview; the lens through which I view, evaluate and understand the world. As a maker, my design partiality steers me toward process and technique. I grew up in rural farming country. This early influence created a lifelong love of folk art, indigenous arts and things handcrafted. I learned to value nature, heritage, and storytelling.

My work is a reflection of the world around me, layered and nuanced, as I observe and experience it every day. I love to travel, and to meet people and hear their stories. I love history, and the connection I feel to past civilizations when I use the ancient and revered techniques of metalsmithing. I am fascinated with history and folklore, and my work strives to reflect the convergence of mythology, identity and ornament.
