With a passion for architecture, both past and present, I create sculptural pieces using jewelry as a platform. By combining the spatial and structural qualities of architecture with the intimacy created between jewelry and its wearer, I encourage the viewer to explore, discover, and question the work.
Each sculpture brings unique challenges and problems. To keep the work precise and clean while working with mixed materials is very challenging, but the result is rewarding. The work is constantly changing and adapting from the initial idea to the final product.
By fabricating with mixed materials I can decisively create, conceal, and reveal physical spaces. Powdercoat, wood, and cement elements promote an industrial look and feel while silver and gold leaf speak to the preciousness of jewelry.
