Anticipation, excitement and joy are the motivating forces of my work ~ Anticipation as I search for unique stones and composition, excitement as it comes together, and pure joy when it speaks to someone and they can feel the spirit in the stone.
I am inspired by the ever-changing light and form of the Southwestern landscape. In my designs I seek to unlock our special connection to the earth. The free-form shapes and organic materials I use allow me to create pieces that reflect the inherent beauty of the natural elements in compositions that bring out a stronger dynamic than each separate element holds on its own.
