St. Louis Park, MN. USA

I am originally from Wisconsin, where I went to UW Stout and got a degree in Studio Art, with a concentration in art metals. I have lived in St. Louis Park for the last 20 years, and after experimenting with different mediums, I have returned to my first love, metals.

I work with enamel on copper and sterling silver. I love to explore texture and color – and I find that both silver and enamel on copper really allows me to do so!

I form the copper before enameling to give the piece some depth. Often, I layer multiple pieces of enamel, adding interest and texture with holes, bumps or graphite lines.

My pieces are fabricated using sterling silver. I leave many of the textures in the surface of the silver that happen as a result of me working the metal. The patina I use is quite durable and has a wonderful depth of color.

It’s not easy to say where my ideas come from. I was raised in a very artistic home, and I grew up believing you could look at just about anything as inspiration!
