My formal training was as a silversmith and jeweler using traditional techniques. I have worked with precious and non precious materials and a variety of processes to make objects including gold and silver jewelry, ceremonial medallions, presentation pieces for special occasions, and ecclesiastical pieces. While I continue to work in this manner, my current focus is with mixed media and sculpture more than with functional craft.
A current ongoing series is based on three recent trips to Pompeii and the region at the base of Mt. Vesuvius.
