About Me....

For as long as I can remember I have loved art and the outdoors!   I worked in natural resources for nearly 18 years when I decided it was time to focus more on the art.  I went back to school in my 40’s and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.   A class in jewelry metals evolved into a career making jewelry. My works involves tradtional metal fabrication as well as metal clay.  My love of nature influences and informs my art.  I find great beauty in natural textures and common objects underfoot.   I elevate these seemingly ordinary items around us to a higher level of significance in the jewelry I create.   Each piece a momento of the passage of time, the cycle of life, and preciousness of nature!

"Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art." 

-Miguel Angel Ruiz
