I received my BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry design from Indiana University and spent two years studying at the graduate level at San Diego State. I have been a resident of sunny San Diego ever since. I share my home and studio with the love of my life (a graphic designer) and our three cats.
I love making things and I hope you love my creations!
