Engineering: the action of working to artfully bring something about (Oxford Dictionaries)

Ten years ago I began a career as an engineer and as such developed a close relationship with metals, plastics and other materials. Eventually this love of materials, together with a long dream of self-expression led me to a path in jewelry making.

Today I design jewelry inspired by the rural Kansas plains of my past and the city skyline of my present. I utilize the contrast between the curvilinear forms from my childhood and the geometry from my urban surroundings to craft timeless jewelry pieces.

Thanks to my engineering background I am able to apply a meticulous construction process to my work which imposes each piece with a sense of quality. Simultaneously my long held love for art and expression, present in my drawings, sculpture and photography, help me convey a soft and organic aesthetic giving my work a one-of-a-kind feel.

My jewelry is a reflection of the juxtaposition of my formal education and my joy for art and self-expression and aims to not only please the wearer but to defy expectations.
