In addition to being a full-time studio artist, I have held the position of Visiting Artist and Instructor at Universities throughout the U.S and for study abroad programs based in Italy. I teach short workshops on various enameling and metalsmithing techniques throughout Europe and the U.S. In most recent years I have curated multiple international exhibitions focused on jewelry and enameling.
I have been fortune to participate in several artist-in-residencies of varying lengths which have allowed for new explorations in my work and am honored to have my work in the collections of; Enamel Arts Foundation, Racine Museum, All Russian Museum of Decorative Arts, and in several private collections.
Texture and Line are the main inspirations within my work. I use these two elements to represent the distilled moments of my life. Creating work that for me is meditative and representative of fleeting moments, a patchwork of my visual library and life experiences.
My hope is to capture glimpses of moments from daily life experiences to which anyone may relate.
