From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be an artist. However, it wasn’t until recently I knew what that meant for me. Born and raised on the south coast of Massachusetts, I received my BFA in Jewelry & Metals (University of Massachusetts Dartmouth) after bouncing around for quite a bit. In the years prior to receiving my BFA, I dabbled in many mediums from industrial design to painting. I also received my MFA in Visual Arts. (Vermont College of Fine Arts)

If you would have told me ten years ago that I would become a professional metalsmith, I may have laughed. Both of my parents were metalsmiths having originally met while in school together. Unfortunately, neither are practicing. That’s why it is sort of bizarre that I have landed here. However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. My education as well as my personal experiences have undoubtedly led me to where I am today, and I can’t wait to see where this journey will take me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your creative journey as well!
