I was a painter and printmaker before I started making jewelry. I have integrated painting, printmaking and metal fabrication into the work I do today. Through my work I often like to explore our different kinds of relationships and the different ways we like to travel through life together. The pieces can be about reaching for your dream with your whole self, staying focused, love and kindness, finding time for quiet and/or recognizing the opposites in our lives. Much of my inspiration is sparked by how we relate with one another.
