Artist Statement Submitted 2019Inspiration springs from all areas of my environment. The spark may come from nature, architecture, music, poetry or even a geometry textbook.
I am particularly interested in connections and how a single object is transformed when it is linked to its twin or to a variation of itself. These linkages create movement and fluidity in many of my jewelry pieces.
In my sculpture and hollowware, the illusion of movement comes through twists, turns and curves. Artfully treated, a cold hard piece of silver, gold or copper can seem to Waltz, Cha Cha or do the twist.
