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.
