About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary:

Contemporary work that straddles design, fashion, and art fields. I experiment with quotidian materials like miniature stainless steel flexible, woven cable with fine metals to reinterpret them to create collections that are industrial but feminine and wearable. I continue my experimentation to create beautiful and wearable, sculptural collections that find the extraordinary in the ordinary. 

I have participated in solo art and juried group shows as well as winning the Raphael Founder Prize for innovation in small metals from the Society for Contemporary Craft. Additionally, I've been featured in several NYC runway shows which resulted in a semi-finalist position for the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund. I am a self-taught metalsmith and artist with an academic background in community economic development work from UC Berkeley which contributes to the interdisciplinary nature of the collections.
