"My love of jewelry started early and flourished at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I developed a more intimate connection with the process of making and began creating more meaningful forms that reflected the natural world.
Nature fascinates me. My admiration and spiritual connection to it inspires me to create. Through the cycles of Earth, the universe makes sense to me. In the intricate and delicate forms of leaves and buds, flowers and seedpods, I see the complete experience of life — birth, growth, existence, aging, death, and ultimately reawakening.
I love to study plants and how they grow. Each component connects to create a perfect structure. I build upon simple natural shapes to create complex, organic, and kinetic forms. Through my work I pay respect to our Earth and the growth and transformation that is part of life."
