Margaret Yaukey

Bio:

Born in 1963 in Dacca, the capital city of Bangladesh. Earned BA in Philosophy from Grinnell College in Grinnell, IA in 1984. Earned MFA in Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Elkins Park, PA in 1996. Currently teaching metalsmithing and jewelry design at Appalachian State University, Boone, NC.

Statement:

These objects are jewelry forms created in the digital environment. They derive their imagery from the particular body form of the individual for whom they were created. Each piece is intended for a single owner, in this sense they are portraits. I focus on portraits of the body as a means of addressing the large questions of human form and human identity in the age of digital art.
