How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I discovered silversmithing, was amazed by the tools, hammers, saws, drills, files and more and fell in love with the material and process.
My favourite techniques are fusing and reticulation, using heat and layers of silver to pattern and shape.
To create shapes, I draw flowers and leaves, to learn their details, then search for interesting lines.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Silver and other materials seduce me into making flamboyant pieces of jewellery: neckpieces, brooches and cuffs.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Silversmith, working with silver and other materials.
