Artist Statement

Water is the basis of life and has been shown to improve our overall quality of living merely by being in, on, or even around it. This is the inspiration for my artwork.

I infuse “watery” polished and raw semiprecious gemstones and authentic sea glass into my contemporary coastal designs. Every organic, ocean-inspired piece is created with solid fine and sterling silver, as well as high karat golds.

Each one of a kind work is created entirely by hand, other than that which was created by nature. The gemstones reflect the lightness and darkness and blues and greens of water, as well as the life within it. The hand-textured recycled metals and organic designs capture the water’s movements, whether it is a cascading waterfall, a rippling pond, a rushing river, or a crashing wave.
