Fine Artist and Designer of Miyu Decay Jewelry and Accessories

 Currently on view at Copro Gallery for a small group show. To see the rest of the available drawings please click  here.    “Efflorescence”  My hope is that the binds and connections of the past can give rise to newer and better versions of ourselves, despite the good and bad, the passionate love and hardships, and the constant adventures. Sometimes we need to lay to rest a part of ourselves, sacrifice, take the accountability despite how painful it may be, in order to grow. Sometimes those journeys need to happen alone. Only time, honest self reflection, and self care can determine if our paths will cross again, however that may look like and regardless of how immense the love is.  This drawing is contiguous with my recent themes of love, loss, the subsequent grief and hope, my representation of corvids as Love & Loyalty, and the Japanese concepts of musubi and kintsukuroi. Musubi has numerous meanings from connecting people, representing the flow of time, knotting- which is also time, unraveling - breaking - connecting again. Kintsukuroi means golden repair or more popularly written as kintsugi - golden joinery, the idea to mend something with gold to repair and embrace the flaws.

I have started a Patreon account for those of you that would like to follow my step by step process of my drawings, illustrations, jewelry - from carving in wax to finishing, and the occasional photo shoots. I rarely share my rough sketches with everyone but I will be doing so on this platform and explaining my thought processes on the conceptual aspects as well. With this, I can interact more directly with all of you!

The patronage is tiered at multiple levels from having the above mentioned access up to the highest tier, which is set up like a payment plan for private commissions. 

Please feel free to share and spread the good word, thank you!
