About

I must create!

I love the process or the journey of creation. I knew I was going to be an artist from day one. After getting tired of drawing dinosaurs and horses for the first part of my life, I went into comics and on to fine & commercial art, working for agencies in CT, NYC, TX and CA. Illustrating is a wonderful career, but I felt the need to start on another journey. Classes on wire wrapping were available at our local bead store, Manifest Beads, and I was hooked from that moment on. I then expanded my horizons with PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and learned from a master, Ray Cooper, who was taught & certified by Tim McCreight. I am an award winning designer and my work has been published nationally and internationally.

I love and enjoy making jewelry and find myself totally lost in the process. Since I never want it to become 'a grind'…

I love and enjoy making jewelry and find myself totally lost in the process. Since I never want it to become 'a grind', and therefore no longer creative for me, I have a limited number of different, quality pieces available. It's always a mystery to know in what direction my 'muse' will take me; or when. Aren't you curious as to what will be at my store next? Who wouldn't be, I certainly am! Please visit often as I haven't a clue as to what I'm going to be making or posting next.

I live by the shore in Milford, CT with my wonderful husband and fabulous cats. One has 6 toes on each foot! A Hemmingway Polydactyl! :)
