I find value and beauty in the waver of the drawn line and the subtleties of the handmade object. I am constantly trying to capture these small moments of contrast where control and imperfection collide. In large scale ink drawings, each line is carefully applied to follow the previous mark as closely as possible without interfering. Regardless of skill and attention, the initial line slowly changes and becomes curved, blotted and irregular. I translate this process and line quality directly into metal forms in the Sawing/Drawing pieces where line after line is hand cut with the jeweler’s saw, highlighting the subtle imperfections of the unalterable mark.

Reflect is a contemporary reaction of art jewelers to historical female portraits from the permanent collections of the Rehoboth Art League in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware. Reflect was on view at the Rehoboth Art League from December, 2015 - February 2016, and at the University of Wisconsin during Zoom Milwaukee, a midwest jewelry and metalsmithing symposium, May 25 - 29, 2016.
This collection was inspired by daily walks in Delaware and Florida, which were a time for exercising my body, and more so my mind - unearthing the designs of earrings, bracelets and necklaces from nature's shapes: seeds, pods and nuts that had fallen to the ground.
