About

From my nest to yours:
Greetings and good day to you! Thanks so much for dropping by my nest.

I am an Artist who primarily focuses on watercolor and oil painting as well as colored pencil drawing but, i love having metal as an alternative medium to work with.
My work is directly influenced from nature and twisted in my own little way. I often find ideas in my mind just before I fall asleep. My art is therapy for me in so many ways. My anxiety is lifted away when I paint and I work through emotions upon my canvas. Color within my work is often representative of my mood. It is rare that any of my pieces are entirely hard edge or entirely soft and delicate seeming... my world lies somewhere in-between the tough and the dainty. I love creating these pieces and hope you enjoy them too!

I enjoy…

I enjoy hand-cutting metal such as copper, brass, nickel and silver. I take each piece and treat it as a mini work of art, sometimes heating the surface to create color and texture, wrapping wire to create movement, or hammering a surface for varrying patterns. I also enjoy a little beading when I find unique pendants or stones as well as cutting paper and stitching it to wire.

Other intrests and hobbies of mine include: gardening, cooking, playing with our pups, organizing, day-dreaming, playing on Etsy, fishing and going to the lake and the beach, blowing bubbles, eating sushi, watching movies, and sleeping : )
