Inspired by the gravel roads, trees & hills, where I grew up, I see designs, patterns & colors everywhere. I’ve always been creative, seeing the world from that point of view.
I began in 2007 with basic beading but quickly realized that in order to set my work apart, needed to add handmade components, from there it was short step to torching metal, which was instant gratification. I stove to learn all I could, with the cast-off tools I had, from books & videos, and mostly trail & error.
Copper will always be my favorite, it’s so versatile in working out new designs.
