Jewellery’s proximity to the body and relationship with the surface of the skin lends itself to creating a dialogue between art and biology.  I see the body as both the site and context for jewellery, the messenger and tool for understanding inner emotion. 


Our common internal biological structures are sources of uncelebrated beauty and inspiration.  I construct jewellery pieces that feel real and alive; serving to remind us of the physicality of our bodies and the joy of our senses - a marriage between art and science.
