jewelry, metal work
I have spent most of my life working with textiles and apparel, shaping and molding fabric to fit the human form. When I took my first jewelry fabrication class in the 90s I was fascinated by how malleable metal can actually be and by the fact that it, too, can be manipulated to fit a form or create a fluid shape. I continue to be intrigued by the possibilities. I enjoy working with different techniques - from ancient to modern - as well as teaching the fine craft of metalsmithing. My favorite aspect of teaching is watching how the creative process and design voice develops individually in each student.
