Jewelry is self expression. It symbolizes our values, our self worth, our personality. I translate the beauty of nature into timeless pieces of wearable art. My design language is simple, pretty, and whimsical. There are three themes to my designs, from the places I find the most inspiration. The Forest is where I rejuvenate my soul, being dwarfed by giant trees, enchanted by wildlife, breathing deeply. The Beach, hunting for sea shells, walking in sand, sheets of rain, a rare shining sunset, wind that will clean out your head, the beach is where I let go. The Garden, gardening is therapy, being outdoors in a space I create and destroy, watching nature's cycles year after year, I find my place. What is your favorite place to take in nature’s beauty?
I graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. I have been creating fine handcrafted jewelry in Portland, OR since 1992. I travel the Northwest vending at various art and craft shows, please see my Information page.
