I am an independent jewellery artist and designer and I love creating high quality, unique creations in precious metals and gemstones. I work exclusively with the lost wax casting technique which means I carve my ideas in wax and then cast them in the desired metal. My work is inspired by movement, music and my background in dance which fuels my interest in the human form. My BA from the Ontario College of Art and Design helped me to become a professional jewellery designer, and my Masters in the UK at the Birmingham School of Jewellery furthered my interest in Art jewellery.
I am passionate about all aspects of my field so I create and model all of my own jewellery, art and photography. My work has been featured in Lark books and has been sold and exhibited in Toronto, London, Paris, Munich, and Australia.
I look forward to creating special heirlooms for you and your loved ones.
My work is currently being sold at:
The Devil’s Workshop, 955 Queen st. west in Toronto.
