Trained as an architect at Rhode Island School of Design, Whitney currently lives and works in New York City. Originally from Hawaii, she has been working with metal since her early teens, however it was during her master's that she repurposed her love of this
craft in order to explore ways the body can relate to other forms.
Her work focuses on questions of how the body moves, what it is to adorn oneself, what comforts and protects, what shelter should feel like, and the beauty of imperfection.
Her jewelry is elemental, raw, architectural, and timeless.
She enjoys working at all scales, and in many mediums.
