Employing the traditional fabrication techniques of the goldsmith in combination with etching, metal clay, sand casting, found objects and enameling, I construct complex narratives in metal that speak to the challenges of our time. By incorporating historical imagery, text, and references along with contemporary observations, I hope to explore and keep alive the enigma that is childhood wonder as well as draw attention to the marvels of everyday life and the preciousness of the extraordinary journey that we are all on together.
