I began selling my pieces through the artisan craft markets in Eugene and Portland, Oregon, then put my pieces in a select few stores in the Portland area. Now I'm thrilled to be bringing my designs to people everywhere.

Please take a minute and look through my pieces. I would love to hear your feedback, whether or not you place an order.
