  • I am an artist living and creating in Houston, Texas.  There has been a long and multi-forked path to my latest collection. I abhor sweeping generalities about my process and usually eschew generic artist statements as I and my creative effluence are in a continual state of flux. My educational and work background is in interior design and space planning.  For over ten years I have been honing my craft as an art jeweler.  When the narrative is requisite, I find expression in both small and large sculptural forms often with the preciousness, detail, or vocabulary of the jeweler’s eye. I adore the transformation of materials and wish to provoke new ways of seeing, within myself and the viewer who participates in my work. From my varied interests, short attention span, and perennial explorations much of my work may not be immediately recognizable with my name, but hopefully importunes a freshness that is itself recognizable. I am active within a community of artists, collectors, and galleries locally and nationally.
