Creating artwork isn’t about production for her. It’s about movement and growth, physically, mentally, spiritually, and personally. Her focus is on the process. Presently her work has been focused on the process of techniques in creating jewelry & wearable art. Trish believes that continually expanding her skills sets and knowledge is important. Gleaning from Master teachers has given her many tools to work with and to share. Metal clay is a bridge to all the mediums that she has explored over the years. Trish blends mystical forms, function, design & organic fluidity to create pieces that are narratives on life and a way to keep sane in our often chaotic lives. She’s attracted to a multi-cultural & Spiritual marriage of symbolism to invoke imagery of inspiration & hope. Art that facilitates growth, mentally & spiritually while depicting the journey through life. Trish’s creations are an embodiment of organic form & inspiration from nature. Trish is a certified instructor in both PMC and Art Clay products.
