I seek balance through a healing practice that integrates observations and rituals. I absorb my surroundings, routines, obsessions, and impulses to further my awareness. I communicate these discoveries in my work through material studies, repetition, and mark-making. My work is a collection of artifacts, time markers that illuminate everyday moments.
I received my BFA in Jewelry | Metal | Enameling from Kent State University. After working as a Bench Jeweler in New York City, I pursued an MFA in Metal from the State University of New York at New Paltz, where I was an Instructor of Record.
In 2019 | 2020, I was an Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts where I balanced teaching and art handling with a full-time studio practice. Shortly after, I held teaching positions at Towson University, Montgomery College, and the Baltimore Jewelry Center in Baltimore, Maryland. I currently teach and work out of my studio in Charlotte, Vermont.
