I create handmade jewelry with bold, one of a kind designs that feature semi-precious stones from around the world as well as repurposed antique items. I use wire wrapping techniques to highlight certain stones or colors. The designs are a combination of contemporary fashion with vintage and traditional elements that focus on the interwoven relationship of color, shape, visual texture, and emotion.
As an artist my paintings begin with the need to express a particular emotion with a certain set of colors, textures, and shapes. As the painting unfolds, My mood alters and these changes are reflected. This evolving process affords a landscape of layers saturated with intense colors that are highly influenced by the complexity and beauty in nature.
