I am a metalsmith jeweller new to the Hollywood area, a recent transplant from Toronto, Canada. I received my diploma in Jewellery Arts from George Brown College in 2000. I spent the next year after graduating as an artist-in-residence at the Harbourfront Centre's craft studio, where I had the chance to teach, participate in a residents' annual show, and try my hand at other crafts. I worked for a year after that in the manufacturing industry, in technical support and training for a cad/cam software reseller, which is another proverbial can of worms... I am currently working collaboratively with flameworker Amy Johnson, making jewellery and small objects from metal and glass.
