My daughter has creates work as well and makes a beautiful line of tree wedding cake toppers that can be seen in our shop.

I have a Fine Art Degree and gave up a stressful Artistic Director job to become a street vendor in Montreal. I evolved into a jewellery designer with clients including The National Gallery of Canada, the Musee des Beaux Art in Montreal and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. I currently am represented by the Viva Vida Art Gallery in Montreal (Pointe Claire, QC).

I give craft and jewelry workshops in schools and libraries and teach Mixed Media Art and Jewelry Making at the Viva Vida Art Gallery in Pointe Claire.
