Working with a torch came naturally to me; my mom is a jeweler and my sister and I were making necklaces and bracelets since we were kids. I loved the techniques she taught me and use them to express myself in a larger format. I studied fine arts with an emphasis in sculpture. I experimented with lots of mediums, everything from hard Costarrican woods to ceramics, stone to paper, and metal to pine needles. In the last few years I used my soldering skills to create copper and bronze wall sculptures. Every day I am trying out new combinations and loved to mix color, texture and form to create new and unique pieces.
