Born and raised in Texas, I now live in Saint Louis. I earned a fine arts degree from Lindenwood University, where I specialized in ceramic sculpture, photography and color theory. Entering the “real world”, I became a graphic production artist working on a computer. I am self-taught in the major graphic design programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Quark.

Much of my inspiration comes from the natural world. The unique forms found in seed pods, knarly woods, veins of leaves, stone textures and the fanned ridges of sea shells always fascinate me and move my imagination toward new creations. I find my love of history and archeology has also influenced my work. Hints of art nouveau, victorian embellishment and even cave drawings can be found in some of my pieces.

Each minute I spend in my studio is a blessing. Each new technique I learn is a joy. My hope is that others will enjoy wearing my pieces as much as I enjoy making them.
