I moved from Missouri to New Orleans, where my inspiration and creativity thrived. After having so much fun and an intense cultural immersion, I decided to move to Denver to continue to explore. After learning and apprenticing with a local metalsmith, I began to develop my first collection. It is titled MUSES, serving as a dichotomy between my time in New Orleans and my new home in Denver. This is represented in contradictions through stones and metals. Denver is a great place to emerge as a new artist, the community of makers and creatives is incredibly supportive and welcoming.
