I make my small objects in wax, cast them in bronze and then delicately cover them with the riches of the underworld; shimmering gold leaf and semi precious gems. I tend to use the same motifs over and over. The snake, the flower, the cross, the star. My work is a way of expressing my deepest feelings and personal connection to the world of myths and beings from the inner planes. They are small offerings that can be placed on an altar or mantel, blessing hearth and home.
