Shoreline: 1991-2012 is a collection of both wearable and non-wearable metals/jewelry works, textiles, and prints capturing my own memories of shorelines. In 1991, at the age of two, I moved with my family to the lakeside city of Holland, Michigan. Growing up Holland, I was always near the water and my love for all things aquatic bloomed. Swimming, fishing, boating, and exploring what washed up in the sand were regular activities that enamored my attentions. As an adult my attention is still rapt with water and shorelines as I travel to new places. It is at these coasts where I find my refuge, meditating on the tranquility of the water before me. Like many who return home with souvenirs from the shore, I assemble my own souvenirs into works that constantly remind me of my respite at the shoreline.
