At 8 years old I was introduced to the world of art by replicating the Impressionists like Monet and Degas using pastels, watercolors and oil paints. I learned about the color wheel and was fascinated with the relationships of complimentary and opposite colors. I enjoyed experimenting with different textures in each medium. During my time in art school I was interested in expanding those ideas into mixed media and collages.
After school, jewelry design caught my attention and I approached it with the same intention – composition, color combinations, and textures. I feel fortunate to be able to work in a place that fuels creative energy. New items catch my attention, which triggers an idea that multiplies into an all-nighter of creating new pieces and exploring new techniques. The possibilities are endless and the inspiration is plentiful.
