Metalsmith, Painter, Teacher… Drifter. Eight months of the year I’m an assistant professor of jewelry and metalsmithing at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The rest of the time I spend teaching at a children’s summer camp near Fayette, Maine and visiting family in Connecticut. Although I haven’t figured out a way to live in Maine year round, my paintings are heavily influenced by this place I consider home, its natural beauty and unique character. My professional practice is driven by my lust for detail, ornamentation, rich color contrasts and a love of finely crafted objects. This is reflected in my paintings, wedding & engagement rings, sculptural jewelry pieces and occasional ceramic work. I am also very interested in space exploration and astrophysics. This curiosity often finds a voice in my metalwork, which has a science fiction and fantasy aesthetic. My work has been exhibited in many galleries through out the United States as well as internationally in South Korea, New Zealand and Canada. It is also featured in more than 13 books and is held in the private collection of the Kamm Teapot Foundation.
