I let the bones of the earth guide me along the path that I have unearthed to create art that can be taken with a person on their journey through life. Those materials are stones and metals that the earth provides. In keeping with the unique quality of the earth, every piece is one of a kind. My second body of work: I explore, harvest and salvage vintage cars in search of and in remembrance of the glory days of road trips and adventure, family drive-in nights and freedom only the open road could deliver. The colorful steel carriages that took us there are resting on hillsides all around us. I rescue the steel in its fun- filled original paint palettes and now weathered patinas to then construct a new wearable journey that you can carry forward into its next adventure. I use cold construction techniques combined with fine and sterling silver to create a modern joyful aesthetic that is ready to hit the road!
