As a metalsmith I try to acknowledge in my own work the history and technical requirements which are inherent in the process. I work with flower motifs in response to the previous traditions of metalsmithing as well as my own fascination with the botanical world. The scientific study of plants, roots, genetics, soils, and plant structures is also an interest of my siblings. I am intrigued with the visual and sensual qualities of flowers. The fascination I have with flowers is longstanding and is matched by my love of adornment and decoration.
