Many things in my life depict movement. Born in Canada, I currently live in Maine following many moves and travel opportunities. My experiences with solo travel to developing countries have helped shape my life in ways in which I will always be thankful.
My designs are named after places where I have spent time and that have left a personal impression. In my mind, the flowing patterns of mokume allude to the contrasts and similarities amongst cultures and the continuity of motion that presents itself when in an unknown place.
I create the mokume in my studio where I choose to use a very open patterning technique, as opposed to the tighter patterns of more traditional mokume.
My jewelry is comprised of unadorned, contemporary constructs that allow the unique mokume patterns to be the focal point.
