I find inspiration everywhere: art, design, people, nature, research, adventure. I found a home in the Columbia River Gorge, via 10 years of wanderlust, which sustained a balance: connection + solitude, spirituality + secularism, nature + culture.

I earned my B.F.A. in Sculpture, working with bronze, iron, steel, wood & stone in a large format, and learned traditional metalsmithing and modern jewelry making techniques as an apprentice under a master craftsman and gemologist. Creating small intimate objects has now captured her creative strengths. Process drives every piece: in combining time honored, old world techniques & craftsmanship with a contemporary aesthetic, each piece organically evolves from a design created to accentuate balance, originality and timelessness.

tru|design is committed to the sustainability of our communities and natural resources. All work is handcrafted using recycled metals and stones sourced from responsible, fair trade practices.
