Artist's Profile

Dramatic physical adornment and sculptural decor are my areas of expression. I design pieces incorporating personal symbolism with devotional significance, meant to be talismanic, magnetic and empowering.

My favorite subjects are botanicals, nocturnal creatures and stylized icons and mandalas with metaphysical themes.

My fashions come from an interest in the lines and shapes of architectural elements such as wrought iron, victorian scrollsaw clocks and cathedral rose windows as well as an obsession with cutting paper snowflakes and kaleidoscopic symmetry. Geometric designs, polyhedra, grids and spirals are a strong influence. Giving me motivation to create patterns reminding me of crop circles and circuit boards.

Materials: leather, rubber, vinyl, butylene inner tubes, industrial supplies such as liquid neoprene, polymer cord, nylon rod and coated fabrics.

Paints: iridescent, metallic, pearl, colorshift,uv reactive, glow in the dark (phosphorescent)

Embellishments: spikes and studs, chain, wire, feathers and bones, seed beads and czech glass with an aurora borealis finish.

Techniques: leathercraft, cutwork, wetforming, fabric manipulation, needle sculpture, knitting and crochet.

Future creations: ornate objects, arcane devices, and as much deviant bric a brac as possible.
