I am a metalsmith, an educator, and a writer.
In my studio, I work primarily in metal, wood, and vitreous enamel. I am thoroughly interested in process and materials, and can easily spend hours investigating and experimenting as I try to answer “Why?” or “What if. . .?”
When I am not busy, I take classes print/painting/drawing. These inform my studio practice—somehow, in these classes that are far outside of my area of expertise, I nearly always make some small discovery. Something shifts. It’s not about the product. It’s entirely about the process.
When I am not at work, in my studio, or in a class, I am likely memorizing a favorite poem, studying HTML & CSS, or looking at the world through my camera. This blog is really a sketchbook that weaves everything together.
