I work with metal, enamel and gemstones. Most of my work is small in scale and can be held in the hand. My current interests include combining steel with precious metal and stones, fabricated container forms, and enameling.
I studied metalsmithing and jewelry at The Memphis College of Art and received an MFA in Metals from Southern Illinois University. I have worked as an independent artist-metalsmith; designed and produced jewelry in a commercial setting; and have taught metalsmithing, jewelry making, lapidary and bronze casting.
