I am fascinated by the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death – and the complexity of the processes that govern life between one place and the next. Using specific sites as my medium, I expand the conceptual meaning and purpose of the object, and play with the audience’s understanding of place. Relevant to the site from which materials have been excavated, each object is a representation of the specific correlations between time, location, perception, and importance; each carrying the history of the site captured within. My jewelry objects are distant memories embodied, and histories waiting to be told.
