Autodidactic- a self-taught person.
Polymath- a person of great learning in several fields of study; polyhistor.
My practice is diverse. I am inspired by material and concept.The artwork produced is under the title ‘Outing The Body’ (OTB). OTB is a series of related pieces that fuse together fine jewelry, fashion design and performance art. I am able to share a message, an idea which can promote conversation and critical thinking. My artistic vission blurs the boundaries between fine craft, fine art, performance, jewelry and fashion.
As I reflect on the past 30 years of my career as a jeweller, designer and performance artist I have come to realize that every decision has brought me closer to artistic enlightenment.
