and the wonderful man in my life for the past 25 years!...

I can't imagine not having art in my life. It's always been there... right beside me. Always urging me to paint this, collage that, sketch her, design that. My dream started to take flight in college. I was a fine arts student at The Ohio State University until my father begged me to change majors.... "you know, you won't make any money being an artist". So... with a Communications Degree in hand, I can now officially Communicate my art in a brand new way.

For several years I was in the graphic design- advertising world where I developed a love for words, structure and visual organization. I then began to study jewelry design through classes and workshops. Learning different techniques and styles from the dozens of artists I was so fortunate to have met. Nowadays I participate in a handful of juried art shows throughout the midwest.... loading up the pick-up with my display crates and vintage suitcases ... conjuring up images of the Beverly Hillbillies coming to town!

Here are some places you may find my finished wares:
