I graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metals in 2009. Now, I am a New England based practicing artist living in New Hampshire. I have recently started a project called “The Feather Exchange.” Through this project, I connect with bird breeders around the United States. Bird breeders from places such as South Carolina, Washington, and Oregon donate their feathers to me. In turn, I transform the feathers into pieces of jewelry which then go back to the original owners of the feathers.
