Jewelry Design Fiberart Photographic Capture of Effect of Time
MULTI-DISCIPLINE MAKER: Jewelry Design, Fiberart, & Photographic Capture of Effect of Time. Like many artists, I'm interested in chronicling the passage of time. My eye is drawn to the effects of that passage, resulting in close-up photographs of rust and deterioration.
Additionally, working with my hands and tools, I enjoy cutting, heating, bending, texturing metals, rendering different forms of personal adornment. A recent interest has been play with powder coat to add color and drawing to my metal jewelry surface. Hands and tools also come into play with various fibers and threads in creating fiberart brooches, neckpieces and sculpture.
