A love of art grew from appreciation to vocation after college, when I found my niche in the metals studio. My work is inspired by the traditional and modern art of North Africa. The cultures in this region of the world, along with Western art, drive the core of my work. I aspire to make jewelry and art with simple, clean lines that retains an air of the exotic.

Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here.

Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.
