I took my first metal smithing class about 8 years ago and loved
being able to take such a rigid material and transform it into
flowing shapes with texture and color. Haystack has been a huge
influence in my training as has been The Maine College of Art. I
find that there are many local artists who offer studio training in
my area that I have highly benefitted from. Copper and silver are
the metals I enjoy using the most because of the oxidation process
and affordability. I am mostly self taught and when not taking
classes, I’m problem solving on my own. My craft is my creative
outlet and I rarely sell my work, but have many friends and family
members who appreciate wearing it. I draw inspiration from nature
and love detail and texture. I am constantly learning and evolving.
