Artist Statement

I have always liked how jewelry can be represented on the body, but I have always felt that I can influence the perception of how people look at jewelry on the human form. Recently, I have been influenced by the style of Baroque art. I use baroque styling to convey my feminine ideas and emotions throughout my art. Some of the design elements of the Baroque period had a delicacy and richness that allow me to present my strong feminine feelings. Yet, another aspect of my art can be personally drawn to the abstract representation of flora and fauna due to myself growing up in an environment near the mountains. These inspirations that I choose to show, allow me as an artist to represent my inner most thoughts. This personal insight continues to motivate me to keep pushing the idea of how jewelry can be represented on the body.
