About

Hello & Welcome. I am an artist and designer with many interests. I love to create in general, but I especially love creating spiritually conscious works of art and making one of a kind custom jewelry. I love making people happy. I love beautiful things and I love taking an idea and making it a reality! My main focus these days centers around launching my line of natural Skin Care products and incorporating my fine art into prints and merchandise that are accessible to the general public.

Jewelry
Dabbling in jewelry design was a natural progression for me. I have always been very secure in myself and in my likes and dislikes, jewelry was no exception. I love self adornment and fashion, but I tend to avoid trends. This was a challenge in Los Angeles—I could never find unique pieces that were ‘me.’ At some point it occurred to me that I could create the designs myself. Before long, friends and co-workers noticed my new jewelry and wanted to know where I got such pieces. The simplicity & originality of my designs was the key. This section will feature a variety of pieces from simple designs to hand-sculpted silver and one of a kind wearable art.


Art & Merchandise:
I have been creating art as long as I can remember. I can’t seem to part easily with originals, but I hope to make prints and merchandise available to all at affordable prices. This section will include a selection of paper goods like greeting cards, prints, and even clothing that feature my original fine art and designs.

Artist's Statement:

I find inspiration everywhere and my subject matter is virtually limitless, but as with most artists I find recurring themes in my art. My creativity takes many paths and I am always working on various projects at any given moment. I always follow my instinct and I feel that is reflected in the quality of my work.

My compositions come from what ‘feels’ right at the time. Some compositions are spontaneous and unstudied while others are the result of hours of painstaking brainstorming. My subject matter is eclectic as well, but also has recurring themes. Emotions and qualities that touch me most often become the subjects of artwork. Different aspects of world cultures, religious iconography, mythology, and fantasy have always appealed to me and I often create my own unique interpretations of these classic themes.

I love finding similarities and paradoxes in classically different subject matter. The juxtapositioning of a visual contradiction is captivating and I think art is a great way to bridge differences and ideas together to find a common ground. I believe that we should celebrate the diversity that makes us each unique and I think art can help us do that by allowing us to see the ‘bigger picture'.
