Painted Landscape Brooch

Daily observances of my surroundings influence my work. The change of seasons in the midwestern landscape provide information and inspiration. Aerial views of this place provide colors, textures, and compositions amazingly remarkable. The beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete inform my jewelry. Conditions make impressions and patinas on objects; the imperfect, variegated textures and forms resulting influence my work, resulting in pieces that provide information of the past while speaking of the present.
