My career began in the world of art. Drawing, painting, and making sculpture from an early age. When I arrived at college I discovered a medium that I had had no contact with before, precious metals.I was immediately drawn to it with a passion and was able to apply everything I knew from my other work to this. Some of my early work was exhibited at The American Craft Museum in New York City, which has now become The Museum of Art and Design. I have worked in the jewelry industry for 35 years now. It has been quite a journey. It has led me to work with some of the most renown jewelry design houses in the U.S. ,who have sold to stores such as Tiffany, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and smaller independent retailers as well. Carving wax is my first love, but I also am proficient with metal fabrication and now use the newest tool, computer aided design/CAD, as well. Through the years I have been able to do work with clients involved with a broad variety of design styles and price points, as well as designing one of a kind pieces for friends and private clients. I bring to my work a sensitivity to the translation of the design idea to 3 dimensions and I very comfortable with organic subjects as well as more precise, tailored design ideas. Being an artist and designer I have always understood and respected the confidentiality of the designs that are given to me to work with, so you can feel confident with that. I look forward to hearing from you.
