I grew up in an unusual environment. My early years were spent between my father’s auto parts business and my mother’s antique store. I worked with my hands at an early age. After a stint as a hairdresser I was able to afford Art school. Once exposed to painting, sculpture, fibers, metal smithing and more, I was hooked!
My jewelry today is bold and expressive. One can see that I love statement pieces. Working in copper, silver and glass along with vintage beads and wire, my work takes various forms: a culmination of the hard and soft of my childhood experiences.
