“Sir, your armor will not fit me, but I find it suiting you.” -Erik Peterson, musician/political activist


Modification, manipulation and mutation are concepts that are prominently featured in my figurative work and how I choose to live my life. Modification has changed the way that I see myself and the way the rest of the world responds to my appearance. The choice to heavily modify and permanently adorn my body has made my life difficult and rewarding. Many of my works include stitching and repetition expressed in metal and fiber, which are powerful ways of showing the process of physical healing, emotional restoration and metamorphosis. It is in making wearable, non-functional jewelry that constricts the wearer’s movements that allows both the viewer and the wearer to step into my place in this world. I use both humor and irony to create layers of meaning in my pieces and I strive for my works create a push-pull feeling between the viewer and the piece. In my current work, I try to show how our experiences can consume and change us into something that we never knew we could be.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
