I've lived up & down the east coast & made many kinds of art my whole life. I have been in Asheville NC since 2002 & metalsmithing since 2007. I enjoy creating from found & repurposed materials. Our local scrap yards as well as friends in the community who save bits & donate scraps when they come upon them. My favorite supplier for other must haves is RioGrande because they have sources listed on all their products. sometimes Made in the USA is as local as I can get to WNC but I'm happy to have them on my side for when I need freshly recycled metals!
My pieces tend to be one of a kind, ready to wear/hang pieces. It's what I love to do when I'm not working on a custom request or a remake/repair or another side project of a plant chandelier! I TRULY LOVE AND AM GRATEFUL TO BE AN ARTIST!! Things go awry sometimes but I am happy to make them right as best possible. If you would like to commission me to repair/remake any pieces or if you want to come to my studio for a lesson to remake it I hope you do reach out.
I'm all over social media! Please find me! xo
