My work focuses on process and using enameling, the ancient art of fusing glass to metal, in a more contemporary manner. Nature serving as my inspiration, I illustrate serene and delicate imagery that I fuse into enamel and then set the work into hand fabricated settings. Recently, I have been working with multiples and repeating forms, as well as exploring the life cycles of flowers, capturing different stages of their existence.
