Luce Artist Biography

Kim Rawdin studied painting and art education in college and states that he “did not notice jewelry” before taking a job as an art teacher on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. Rawdin began to approach his own work as a tangible experience of the landscape, much as Native Americans do in making their jewelry. Rawdin is also influenced by traditional Japanese haiku and scroll paintings, and often includes on the back of his bracelets a poem that serves as “an emotional metaphor for the landscape.”
