Artist Statement

 

In the studio

For me, it is all about observation and where we choose to focus our attention. It is an opportunity to slow down enough to become fully aware of the beauty that surrounds us every day with a quiet moment; a deep breath.  Perhaps a walk in the woods on a crisp autumn day, or the hush of dawn as the sun rises, chasing patterns through the trees.

Even the mesmerizing intricacies of lichen as it blooms in the textured bark of an ancient oak become a meditation; a moment of connection with the beauty that surrounds us when we shift our focus to the stillness, to the tranquility, to the enduring grace. Translating these observations into wearable art has grown beyond a profession; it is now a way of life. Using simple shapes as a canvas and precious metal as a medium, surface textures and color become the language with which to share these moments where time seems to stand still and awareness expands, inviting calm and quietude.
