Statement

As a jeweller, I make work that balances humor, seriousness, and technical skill. My preferred material is silver; applying the technique of niello, gold, wood and I also draw. When I make jewellery, wearability is important to me, so weight, size, and sustainability matter. I use art as my way to investigate my surroundings. The things we make and leave in our world tell a lot about how humans place themselves in relation to other people and to other species. My choices of what I depict tell my perspectives.
