Hello Danielle - it's wonderful to see such beautifully complex work appear to be simple and quiet...just lovely pieces. There are so many of us working with similar ideas - the collective unconscious at work?
Hey, thanks! I like your work too -- I had seen the cactus-like brooch before and I love the other pieces you have pictures of. Very biologically provocative and mysterious! And I thought your statement was intriguing and well-written; sounds like our interests overlap a lot. I've been noticing that there are a lot of metalsmiths who work with these kinds of issues.... Maybe we should form an interest group -- "Artists Who Dig Biology!"
I look forward to seeing what you make in the future!

Metalwork and ornament have a longstanding relationship with the natural world. My work is linked to this tradition, using the visual language of nature to present the viewer with an alternate perspective of the world we inhabit. Protection, self-preservation, vulnerability, openness, reproduction, sexuality, growth, aggression, conflict, illness, decay, life and death cycles are themes I visually engage and reference. Rather than simply representing the natural world, I prefer exaggerated, artificial forms that speak of an engineered biology. My intention is to resist that which is commonly considered universal or essential, and open a dialogue about what is assumed to be “natural”.
