I approach my work as a painter, creating a study painting first in order to finalize the design of the jewel. All purchases of jewelery pieces are therefore accompanied with a print of the original study painting.
My work is an exploration of the relationship between environment and identity, illustrating individual experiences and stories to further research identity and space. Through the use of layering and watercolor, my pieces take on a whimsical and playful nature as they record and re-enact unique and fleeting moments of time. Using elements of perspective I leave the pieces up to interpretation, allowing the viewer to project his own individual experience and path in the imagery of my work.
