Artist Statement: 
"Through my work, I find intriguing to explore ideas of space, scale, and absence of symmetry, enabling me to wed precious metalsmith non-precious elements. Designing jewelry feels like investigating form, structure, material, and balance to derive a piece of art which will have an intimate physical relationship with the human body and will be completed only when it becomes part of the wearer’s experience and expression."
