My work is rooted in process and inspired by the natural environment. My current work is an exploration of form and technique through an imagined mythology of the ocean. Each piece of jewelry in this series is designed to be worn by an imagined ocean steward, and the design reflects a particular region of the ocean. The forms and shapes of this series are inspired by the various flora, fauna, and phenomena found within each of the represented ocean environments.
I am excited by the beauty I see in diverse ecosystems around the world, especially in the wide array of aquatic and ocean environments. Through my work I hope to inspire in others the same sense of beauty and wonder that I feel and help foster a desire to take better care of the natural world.
