“I graduated from Edinboro University with a BFA in 2009 and Miami University with an MFA in 2013 metalsmithing with a focus in metalsmithing, working on everything from drawing and designing to jewelry and large-scale sculpture. My sculpture, jewelry and drawings tend to reflect each other; drawing in space and creating sculptural jewelry, which are both delicate and industrial. I want the wearer to feel the visual impact of the jewerly without be overwhelmed by the physical and visual weight of the metal. “
