"Our bodies perpetually occupy the built environment. My work attempts to reverse these roles and interactions by allowing the visual language found within these constructed spaces and opportunity to intimately coexist and inhabit the body.
I examine and challenge formal architectural organization and its materials in an attempt to redefine and elevate its essence through an investigative process. In-between moments of submission and disobedience materials reveal beauty and ornament authentically.As artifact my jewelry captures a moment between material, time and place that purposefully interacts with human form."
