Artist's Statement

To me, the art of jewelry making cannot exist without the client, and it's from my clients that I get many of my best ideas. Easily half of the pieces in the portfolio would never have existed without the inspiration of that particular client, and for that I thank you all!

As for me, I have a continued fascination with the way angles combine to create movement in a still piece. It seems to me that angles have their own ideas about how to work and what other angles they plan on forming by themselves without your prior knowledge, or often consent. In my work I try to build a bridge between the art deco style and the freedom of modern art. I'm perpetually drawn towards Picasso and the entire cubist/neo-cubist periods, particularly for the challenge of trying to incorporate those styles into wearable jewelry.
