About

While most of my inspiration comes from our town and state, fishing industry, wildflowers, marine and wildlife, and our community in general, ideas pop in from other cultures including Celtic, Asian, and Native American.

A few years ago my husband and I moved onto our 54' sailboat, so space became an issue and I needed to change art mediums from stained glass to beadwork. This helped me discover a whole new way to look at art! I have a blog on the boat if you are interested:

When I get home I curl up in my big comfy chair in the salon (boatspeak for livingroom) and spending long winter evenings designing and creating my beadwork. My captain/skipper husband never begrudges my beadstuff clutter sprawled about and understands my need for a creative outlet.
