I am the third generation in a long line of artists, art lovers, and art dealers. From the art of my parents, to that of their friends, I have been looking at art my entire life. As a child, I was dragged to galleries and museums across the United States and Western Europe- doodling childish versions of the old masters in my own tiny sketch book. While I have never been a painter myself, I am an artist… A jewelry artist.
Drawn to the lunar, the feminine and the mysterious, I find beauty in natures imperfections. This beauty is what I strive for in my own work. I prefer ancient methods, and the most elemental forms of working. I find magic as I manipulate, melt, and pour the molten metal as I shape it into forms of my own creation. The elements of ritual, of intention, can be found in each of my pieces. I feel a connection with silver. There is a link that connects us to the women who first wore silver, on different shores, in ancient times.
