The fluid lines and sensuous feel of the Art Nouveau era along with the beauty of nature are reflected in my work. Using nature as my inspiration, I endeavor to create expertly crafted heirloom jewelry and vessels. As an artist, I receive gratification from working in noble metals that someday will be owned, displayed, utilized or worn by clients in their everyday life. I hope to have my artwork passed down from generation to generation. Over my 43-year career, I have worked in gold, sterling silver, Argentium silver, precious stones, and copper. I fabricate all of my work and use ancient metal techniques such as chasing, repoussé, engraving, granulation (a process that fuses gold to silver), saw piercing, gold leaf application and many others are incorporated to add detail, interest, and beauty.
