I started my art career in 2006 when I experimented with casting leaves in concrete and hand painting them.

Over the years, I have created close to a thousand pieces of leaf art, which has allowed me to try many color combinations, and to use many types and sizes of leaves.
Each time a leaf is cast I can hardly wait for them to dry so I can start to reveal their final beauty with the painting process. The colors I use are dictated by the piece itself, as it comes to life.

My art takes the form of several products. The larger leaves are cast in a special blend of concrete that is durable for both inside and outside use. These items consist of decorative wall pieces, bowls, platters and bird baths. My smaller leaf impressions are made using clay. These jewelry castings consist of rings, necklaces, and earrings In addition to the custom cast leaf, I use black silken rope cords, an assortment of sterling silver, gold-filled, brass, and gun-metal components. These items are extremely comfortable and lightweight and are available in every color you or I can think of.

Some new art I have started to produce consists of clay butterfly, dragonfly and bird sculptures with real leaf impression wings......SO cute!! I'm very excited about my expansion into leaf jewelry and winged friends:)

The art that I create from nature is a great way to add a little something different to my collectors’ homes and gardens. It was from these collectors that I was inspired to create my jewelry line.

I am so thankful that I am capable of creating something with my hands that other people appreciate:) Thank you for taking the time to read a wee little bit about me:)

~LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE~

All my Art is signed on the back and are completely one of a kind imprints of nature being that the leaf is no longer usable after it has been cast.
