My creative journey takes me into nature where the rich kaleidoscope of color and texture is transformed into the designs and materials of my jewelry creations. Semi-precious stones and metals, natural artifacts, and organic designs reveal the essence of the earth in each piece. I also draw upon my background in fiber arts, ceramics and silversmithing to inspire my creative process. I began my art adventure in high school with a focus on ceramics. In college I explored fiber arts, silversmithing and more advanced methods of ceramics. I also taught art to students with learning challenges and disabilities for 20+ years.
