“The philosophy of Sacred Geometry illuminates much about how and what I perceive and reflect upon. Geometry as the basis of composition in the natural world is an affinity I have had from a very young age. The interrelation, interconnection between the natural world and the cosmos is intricate and complex. My work in essence is a visual biography, steeped in existential contemplations synchronically with history and events which inform, inspire and perplex me.”
Majoring in Fine Arts at Penn State University and then at Millersville University, I recognized upon my first semester in jewelry making that this was the medium for my creative expression. I have worked as an independent studio jewelry artist, metal smith and lapidary since 1979. The work is sculptural, architectural and often inlaid with stone to instill a painterly narrative.
Over the course of time, I have exhibited my work through galleries, exhibitions and art shows with placement into a number of private and public collections; including the Daphne Farago Collection and Art of the Americas Collection at the Museum of Fine Art Boston. As well, the work has been featured in publications including the 2020 and 2021 books…BBeyond Jewelry: Spectacular and Collectible Pieces, BBeyond Publications.
