My studio practice is an exploration of ideas.

Starting with the familiar; fragments from nature, memories or reflections, I begin by building studies. The process of making, from the choice of materials to how the piece is fabricated continually informs and alters the direction of the work and in turn offers new possibilities, new directions. It is this sense of discovery that compels me to make.

My hope is that these objects convey a poetic sense of the everyday and become intimate art forms that are worn, shared and passed on for generations.

This piece was made while my dearest friend was in hospice. We were discussing life after life and how one day we’re engaged in our hopes and dreams here on earth and the next we’re stardust. It’s made from roll printed, reticulated sterling and vitreous enamel.

I have a small production studio on the northern California coast where I produce limited edition and one of a kind pieces with the help of a part time assistant. Recently I've discovered liquid enamel which has enabled me to combine my love of painting with metal smithing.
