Artist Statement

I have started a new series of brooches and metalwork based on correspondence my family has received regarding the pandemic and unemployment issues. However, 2020 has been a chaotic journey filled with a new crisis almost every day and I can barely keep up. This new work reflects my experience in 2020.

I am experimenting with some new ways of constructing my pieces – adding narrative, color, and mixed media, on copper with torch and kiln fired enamels, constructing pieces that resemble little books – the story of 2020.
