I have had a passion for jewelry and metals since I was a 12 year old girl making necklaces. I have developed an expertise in metalsmithing by taking many classes, workshops, years of experimenting and developing my own techniques. I create mixed metal jewelry and sculpture that is inspired by the world around me. I love texture and innovative design and incorporate those facets into my work. I like to collect odd and common objects for mixed media sculpture. I enjoy picking pieces up off the street, waiting until getting a spark of creativity and using these individual objects to create something new. I use all the techniques and knowledge acquired in 30+ years of making jewelry and sculpture for a living.
