During the late 1970's my Designs and Work consisted mainly of Precious Gems and Gold/Silver.


In the 1980's I attended Art College in Oakland California [CCA] and Calgary Alberta [ACAD],from that point my Design and Work shifted from Jewelry to include Reactive Metals Sculpture.


Originally from Riedlingsdorf Austria I now live on beautiful Vancouver Island and continue to produce one-of-a-kind works in Jewelry and Reactive Metals Sculpture using the Refractory Metals Titanium,Niobium and Tantalum along with Gold and Silver.

I also teach at NIC's Metal Jewelry Design Dept. Campbell River Campus.
