"Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever". - Goethe
Nature's palette is profound; its variety sublime.
How could I not become entranced as I look closely at the infinite complexity of forms, patterns and textures found in our natural environment? I draw from these sources - open to both the exotic and the common - always surprised by the unexpected.
These feelings and subsequent drawings are translated into jewelry - an intimate and precious medium. I base each carving and pattern on the extraordinary life found on our planet. The materials I compose with emphasize a connection with nature.
