- In my research as an artist, the value of receiving a ring or watch from a passed loved one can become our most prized belonging. This idea has compelled me to create functional and wearable art.
In my artwork, research development began by exploring my personal background and expanded through international travel. While traveling, I was exposed to different communities with a range of economic and social backgrounds. These interactions have aided in the development of new designs, allowed for artistic collaborations, and helped me experiment with new materials.
- Working with sterling silver, copper, and found objects, I create designs that relate to my past, present, and future.
