As a Metalsmith

I am seduced by the materials I work with.
Challenged by the technical aspects of the
field, I allow the intuitive to lead the way.
I believe that art comes from the heart as
well as the head. I also believe that the
making of an object is as important as the
finished product. This is why I am dedicated
to teaching my craft and honored to pass
these skills on to anyone interested.

"I believe that the arts are the immune system
for our society." — Lynne Hull
