I have always been fascinated with anatomy because every line, every recess, every form has a strong refined purpose which is the sustaining of life in an organism. The essence of my artistic voice is the highlighting of the explosive undulating lines and corresponding negative shapes within life forms across our world through hand-pierced metal. I'm focused on getting people to wear anatomy and not just the anatomy in our bodies but also the anatomy from within a starfish, microscopic organism or tree. A statement on the connection within all life that we take for granted or sometimes refuse to see at all.
