It seems to me that my work erupts from waves of emotions. Life forms evolve from some inner or external force that happens mysteriously once I start to draw or hammer or bend or fold or carve. Jewelry has come to me fairly recently, but it is the completion of a circle that began in college with my welding and ceramics classes when the magic of metal, clay and fire took my heart away.
i am currently working on wild animal motifs as inspiration but more importantly as a reminder that we need to protect wild animals and the habitat they require -- for our own sakes.
Here's a link to one of my jewelry making processes.
