About the Artist
My art is non-functional personal adornment. It is to trigger the unconscious and evoke an emotional response in the beholder. Items that were alive once and now dead are resurrected in silver, symbolic sections removed--riveted or stitched patches taking their place--becoming an object of immortality. Leaves, twigs, bamboo pieces, shell fragments, found stones and pebbles, driftwood, beach glass—nearly anything I find around me—works its way into my work. Objects are prepped, sprued up, invested, burned out, cast, cleaned and fabricated into finished items. No molds are used, each piece is unique. Deconstructed items are patched, stitched & reassembled. The color in the patches is my own low fire enamel process I developed just for this technique and is unique to me. Lives and works in Beaufort, NC.
