Like most artists she is not really sure where the source of her creativity resides; all she knows is that the unique design of each creation comes to her all at once, and is finalized after a time spent working with various possibilities. She realizes that her greatest creative gift is her ability to combine different colors in an amazing way to create incredibly unique paintings and jewelry. She also has an odd knack for sculpting amazingly spherical beads by hand, using an ancient Egyptian hand-rolling technique.
She is an expert bricoleuese (pronounced like masseuse), highly trained in the art of using various patterns of multiple media in various orientations.
Her art has sold well throughout the Northeast, and she is now making her work available globally.
