I am currently a full-time Assistant Professor of Psychology at FSU and have also been a metalsmith student at Penn Alps Artisan Village for the past five years. In 2013, I retired after serving as the Chief Psychologist at the federal prison in Cumberland for 20 years.
I currently develop my skills under the direction of Doug Salmon and a more advanced student of his, Hannah Ehlman (see her Etsy shop at HannahJeanMetalworks) and now have my own home studio. I an involved in metalsmithing in bronze, copper and silver and tend to favor flowing lines, nature images, abstract and asymetrical designs.
For questions regarding any of my work or sizing, I welcome community members into my home studio in Frostburg to try on items viewed here that often need to be "tested" before purchase, such as bracelets. My work can also be view at the Penn Alps gift shop and Mountainside Creative gallery in Cumberland on Liberty Street. My home phone number is: (301) 689-3099 or I can be reached by my cell/business phone at (240) 727-4170. As I have my summer off from teaching at FSU, I will be available much of the summer, yet also do have some trips planned.
