Artist Statement:

My hikes through nature inspire my jewelry pieces. These journeys are an integral part of my life when I feel exhilarated by the liberation from social restraints. The silence and the infinite variety of visual impressions allow me the opportunity to observe and discover. I am concerned with fundamental questions about life in a cultural environment and western society.
My answers and experiences offer a unique yet respectful way with unusual materials, resulting in astonishing new definitions of beauty.
