Over the years my jewelry and artwork have sold in galleries and juried art shows across the region and the gift shops of St. Louis Art Museum and Missouri Botanical Garden. I've slowed down a bit now but continue to make one of a kind pieces in my studio every day. The creative process never fails to energize me. It is who I am and what gets me up in the morning.
I like to use found objects and mostly non-precious handmade elements. I've found this keeps the work intuitive and constantly evolving. I think of jewelry as kinetic sculpture with the added challenge that it should compliment the wearer.
