The fascination I have with the mystery of relics and ancient artifacts is inherent in many of the pieces I create.  The treasures found in archaeological digs have incredible stories to tell. I try to capture the feeling one gets when seeing an artifact; the reverence and spirituality invoked by such pieces. I am intrigued with the crossover of cultures, religions, ethnicities, beliefs and melding them into a harmonious piece, reflecting my desire for a harmonious world.

The “Feminine Sacred” is also an integral theme recurrent in my work. I am captivated by humanity’s reverence for the divine female.

The ruins and museums I visited in places such as Heraklion, the Parthenon, Turkey, Mexico, Asia, Egypt, Africa, and many more  have evoked some of my strongest influences.
