Surreal Adornments for the Body & Mind

Words for me have always been a ‘jingle jangle’ of pictures and symbols. I think entirely in pictures and words spoken to me are also seen as pictures. This creates confusion as the images I see are literal interpretations of the words spoken.

Working as a silversmith enables me to anchor these surreal pictographs from behind my eyes, by making them into 3-dimensional sculptures to graphically illustrate to others that there’s more to words than meets the eye and ear.

My wish is that people will view my work with an open mind to an alternative way of communicating through art that is unexpected yet fascinating.
