Reimagining The Possibilities

Long over due post, a year to be exact. But what a year it has been!


At the 2019, Edwardsville Art Show, I was fortunate enough to receive an award of Excellence along with some of my former classmates and our Instructor. Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has an outstanding metalsmithing program, and the instructor (Aimee Howard-Clinger) is the glue that holds it all together.


I came to SIUE as a mixed-media artist who liked to wire wrap the occasional crystal. OK, I can admit it... I've always been a crystal wearing hippie. But the training I received at SIUE gave me a solid foundation in traditional metalsmithing techniques. And from that, I've been able to start forging out my own style of Jewelry.
