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 traditional 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 memento of the passage of time, the cycle of life and the preciousness of nature!
