I consider my process to be a transmogrification of my inexplicable depth of feeling into concrete material forms. I work with clay and wax to give shape to my feeling-forms and I solidify them by casting metal, plastic, plaster, and other materials. These forms resemble the ones found in nature. And they tie my inner world to the outer efflorescence I feel resonating in my core, while immersed outdoors. I create jewelry to collaborate with the human body. These embellishments interact with the surrounding environment as extensions of the body; thus, nature is not something we set out to find, but it is something we are a part of.
