Born 1974 in Chapel Hill, NC and raised in Charlottesville, VA.
I currently reside in Columbus, OH.
My work draws on two main sources of inspiration: geography and
anatomy. While very different in scope and tangibility, both allow me to reference the physical world and our place in it.
My work in vitreous enamel combines subtle fields of color with hand-drawn elements; each is carefully finished to create a rich stone-like surface quite different from conventional enamel work.
This interest in texture, surface and touchability carries over to my carved pieces, which blend unconventional materials with traditional ones, old with new, precious with non-precious. I work with a wide array of materials, including sterling and argentium silver, copper, wood, acrylic, bakelite, corian, vulcanite, bone, horn, jet, and stone.
