My present work consists of both jewellery and tableware. I focus my designs around simple, smooth geometric shapes. I like my work to have a solid presence and clean lines. I’m intrigued by the anatomical complexities of the human body and enjoy combining these organic shapes with geometric forms. I work mainly in silver, incorporating plastics and resins, which create a contrasting surface within the piece and add an element of color.
I realized my love for metal while completing a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, majoring in Jewellery and Metalsmithing. After graduating in 2003, I worked in and out of the jewellery field before settling in Edmonton, where I apprenticed under Wayne Mackenzie at Electrum Design Studio from 2006 to 2010.
