As a metalsmith, I explore the inherent malleability of metal to be formed into organic shapes and interpret natural forms. I live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and my work reflects the colors, textures, and forms of my coastal environment. The ever-present elements of water, wind, and sand combine with my interest in the botanical and marine flora and fauna to inspire my jewelry. In developing my pieces, I am not concerned with accurately representing a specific organism in scientific detail, but in capturing spirit or essence and the dynamic growth cycles of the natural world.
