Artist Statement

My passion as an artist is to create unique works with meaning, often inspired by nature, poetry, philosophy, and the human experience. My desire is to express through my work the deeper motivations for why we make art. I endeavor to reflect both the beauty and the pain that we all experience as humans making our way through life. 

I work principally in the mediums of metalsmithing/jewelry and photography. I hand fabricate the majority of my pieces, though I also explore creation through the use of technology, using CAD and 3D printing to bring pieces to life, unrestricted by the limitations of handwork. No matter the process I use, I infuse each of my works with intention and the passion with which I create them. Most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind.
