"I am formally educated as an illustrator, however my need to explore science, the natural world, and 3D object creation has inspired me to enter the alchemical world of the metalsmith. I fabricate my metalwork from raw materials and do the lapidary work and cutting for most of my own stones.
I have studied independently with some of the most talented metalsmith/jewelers of our time: Michael Boyd, Michael Good, Jim Dailing, Harold O’Connor, Bob Ebendorf, Todd Reed, Alan Revere, Julie Jerman-Melka, Mary Ann Scherr, Betty Helen Longhi, Cynthia Eid, Michael David Sturlin and Marcia Lewis. I owe them the debt of honor and gratitude for their teachings."
