Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Beacon, NY
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
I work out of my home studio in beautiful upstate NY
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I'm an Art jeweler, who re-Members Barbie fondly…

Barbie was immensely important in fueling my creative life as a child, and ironically continues to be such for me as an adult. My Plastic Body Series jewelry collection is the result of my life-long fascination with the icon, and a desire to re-purpose mass produced materials into handmade, wearable Art.

I received my BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and have been creating work in this series for over nine years. I currently reside in Beacon, NY and am living my dream as a full-time artist.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
