After maternity leave of my third child and a global pandemic, I am returning to the studio a different artist. I've spent the last fifteen years making jewelry and I've learned and grown so much. After breaking my wrist and taking painting classes over the last year, I'm excited to say that I'm evolving back towards my roots as a fine artist and seeking out larger scale commissions.
First step, refreshed artist statement:
By creating organic forms and natural textures using industrial materials my art explores the intersection of biology, technology and the consequences of a hyper-industrialized society on evolution and the environment. As a sculptor, educator, business woman and interdisciplinary commission based artist, my work focuses on creating meaningful, lasting, healing beauty for all to enjoy.
