Artist Statement

​

I am an entirely self-taught silversmith and jewelry designer and have been working at the craft for over 40 years. I owned and ran an art gallery in Baltimore, Maryland where I successfully sold my work for several years in the 1990s. Since then other interests and various entrepreneurial efforts—from free-lance writing to publishing magazines—from graphic design to web publishing, have been my major professional focus, but I have held fast to my creative metalwork throughout the years. Most recently I am enjoying hand-fabricating realistic botanical pieces in sterling, fine (100%) silver, and copper. All this work was created in 2018.
