'Making art and creating was from an early age the primary way of expressing my sentiments and experiences.'
My father, who taught me to weld as a child, shared stories of my grandfather's work in the silver mines of Zacatecas, Mexico; fuelling my passion for working with metal. Today I work primarily with pure iron and 22ct. gold, with interest in the disparity between their values; one has a connection with opulence, the other with industry. Each piece is hand forged and incorporates traditional and experimental techniques. My work process is intuitive exploring sculptural forms to create wearable ornaments.
