About the Metalsmith


"It is not an easy journey from paper to metal, from two dimensions to three, but somehow I have always known the paths were parallel." 

I have been a Bauhaus-trained graphic designer for 35 years before devoting my full time to metalsmithing, and I find my lifetime work and creative influences perfectly inspire my new art.

With my Taurean love of the organic and tactile combined with my Aquarian awe of technology and structure, I envision an exploration of tension and contrasts in my jewelry creations. Richly textured surfaces will combine with organic structural qualities, precious metals with found objects, gems with non-precious metals and plastics, tribal design with new architectural forms, but all created with an eye to the sensual and dependent upon the magic of serendipity.
