My work is constantly evolving, but it commonly draws inspiration from my interest in heirlooms. I grew up in a home full of antiques and spent a lot of time in roadside antique shops with my parents. These heirlooms were very important to my parents, so they taught me to appreciate and treasure them as they did. Naturally, I became interested in these objects and the simple purpose for which they were used. This has played a considerable role in my subject matter and process as an artist. Much like the objects that inspire my jewelry designs, I aim to create modern heirlooms that evoke a feeling of nostalgia and comfort to its wearer.
