"Striving to achieve a balance of beauty and evocativity in my work, I passionately explore the ways in which we communicate through interaction. Contextualizing art on the body, I believe, enables jewelry to have an intimate dialogue with the wearer- unlike any other art form. My focus is on creating conceptual art jewelry, sculpture and instillation, in which the wearer is an integral part. Interested in the relationship we have with the urban landscape: I observe how the forces of nature prevail despite our constant attempts to control them. Exploring a new aesthetic, my work bridges the craft and fine art margin- using craft processes to create fine art objects. Value, for me, is created in the intellectual depth of my work; preciousness is measured in its longevity."
