Manifesto

My work resonates with a substantial armor-like and ancient whimsy. I am obsessed with medieval and old-world style and culture. I intentionally antique and distress each piece for a timeless rustic feel, and use sterling silver, copper, brass and natural stones as my medium. Aside from using traditional silver-smithing techniques, I love to create organic designs incorporating crafts such as etching, electroforming, enameling, and various patination concepts. 

I always have a sketch book in my possession, as I am constantly inspired and moved to creativity by the many incredible nuances of beauty and strangeness in this world. Each piece is entirely hand-made in my small home-based studio, currently residing in Dallas, Texas. 

On my journey to discover the perfect combination of medium, inspiration and technique, I am eternally grateful for the ability to use my hands to create original works of art.
