I have always had a strong sense of curiosity. How and why are questions I ask in most situations. This ideology lends itself to art and creation on so many levels. The what if I try this mentality. I am a multidisciplinary artist who loves to capture the unexpected in her artwork. It has always been my vision to create work with this sense of wonder and surprise. Art that looks one way on the surface, but upon further investigation holds surprises and hidden treasures. Most of my work can be worn in multiple ways or is reversible and uses materials that are juxtaposed. I make small one-of-a-kind collections usually based on a thought or idea, using semi-precious metals, gemstones, and handmade paper.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My work comprises mostly of hollow-form shapes, built from flat pieces of metal using hammers, blocks, and a torch to create free-form shapes. These shapes are then pierced or scratched to add different dimensions to the surface of each piece. I use traditional stone setting techniques to add gemstones or other materials such as paper. I make collections of one-of-a-kind pieces using sterling silver and gold along with precious and semi-precious gemstones.
