    “The inspiration for my work comes from my love of the Adirondack Mountains as well as the American Southwest. Both are home to dramatic landscapes, and require a ruggedness from their inhabitants in exchange for their beauty. Over the past decade, it has been my desire to create wearable art, representative of my travels, experiences, and appreciation of the natural world. Stone, antler, wood, leather, and glass are some of timeless materials nature provides. I weave together vibrant colors to communicate life, joy, and a determination to thrive. It is my desire that each piece I create tells a story of natural beauty and strength, and that these qualities resonate with the wearer.”
