About Us

About Our Art

Creativity is something that can stir the soul. My goal is to create truly distinctive one of a kind designs that lift the spirit and inspire the soul. I have a love for many mediums within the arts. From metalsmithing to ceramics, from graphic design to fiber design. They all intrigue me and that’s why I am a mixed media jewelry artist. All of these mediums are great on their own but together they open a whole new world to create items that is truly “Wearable Art.”

 

One of my main focuses in creating my lines of jewelry was to find a way to combine my 2 dimension images with my love for jewelry design. I enjoy combining my drawings, watercolors paintings, collages and photography with my distinct style of fretwork, wire wrapping, forging and texture within my metal work.

 

My subject matter mainly involves nature, abstracts, and the beauty of the female image. In society today so many of the images of women are many times negative and degrading. That is why I try to show through my art just how beautiful women are. The beauty of women, colorful abstracts and the beauty of “Nature” gives me a voice and this is the vision I want to share with everyone. These concepts are my true inspirations.
