For me, art is my life. It’s the way I communicate ideas, understand
nature, and learn about life. I enjoy drawing, painting, sculpture,
printmaking ,and photography, but I love the engineering and intellectual
challenges of metalsmithing and making jewelry. I enjoy the sound and
power of the hammer hitting the anvil.
