I am a maker. I come from a family of makers, hunters and gatherers. My father is a writer, he tells his stories through words. My mother, a homemaker, tells her stories through food and hospitality.
“Not all who wander are lost”.
I like to explore creative paths to discover and learn skills, materials, techniques to see my stories/design visions come through in tokens of adornment.
I am drawn to natural elements, inspired by native american craftsmanship and culture.
