ARTIST STATEMENT

I combine the natural elegance of silver with the vibrant colors of anodized aluminum to create jewelry that’s delightful to behold and easy to wear. I love creating pieces that help you celebrate your day simply by wearing them.

For the past 26 years, I’ve had a love affair with aluminum. Why? Because of its ability to be anodized. Anodizing is an electrochemical process that allows me to permanently dye it a wide range of luminous colors. I'm one of a handful of artists that anodize their own aluminum, and in doing so, I have mastered several techniques to achieve a variety of distinctive colors and effects.

While primarily a jeweler, I also enjoy creating small, indoor sculptures inspired by the elegant forms of plants.

I currently live in Portland, Oregon working as a full-time artist, selling my work through my website, craft shows and The Alberta Street Gallery in NE Portland.
