I am continually experimenting and combining precious gems, pearls and metals with found objects as jewelry or sculpture. For the last 30 years, I have cultivated the traditional metal working skills I gained in art school, but I also enjoy breaking the rules by melting, fusing, piercing and burning materials to bring out their natural beauty.

My work has been exhibited throughout the Northeast, most memorably in a traveling exhibit with Tiffany’s & Co. and Christies, NY. My studio is located at Metro Art Studios in Bridgeport, CT and I welcome the public to visit “Open Studios” events six times a year. My showroom is also open by appointment.
