As a lifetime artist my focus has toggled between various media all of which common threads are woven. My world is a celebration of colors and shapes, rhythmic and life giving that stimulate and sing. Whether painting or designing jewelry, steady hands meticulously and lovingly render creations of beauty.
My designs are an investment of my knowledge and experience reflecting the exuberance and intensity by which I closely observe and interpret my surroundings. At the same time my creative process is instinctive and emotional. I use a variety of elements ranging from ancient to antique, vintage to contemporary beads and components. The use of repurposed materials reflects a philosophy that I am passionate about, reduce, reuse, recycle.
I love to mix it up with wood, shell, silk, suede, fiber, metal, glass, salvage, items from nature just to name a few. The riot of colors, patterns and meanings is funneled and refined into intensely personal works of art. Each creation is one-of-a-kind and stands alone as an heirloom adornment of personal expression.

    I loved your designs featured in Amy Butler’s Blossom magazine and would love to know where you sell your jewelry (your etsy shop is empty!). thanks!
