About

I create decorative and useful items, inspired by nature. Among these are leaves of all sizes, imprinted with the shapes and veins of natural living leaves. Some are slightly bowled for use as birdbaths, floating candle holders and more. Each piece is as unique as the natural flowers and leaves I use to imprint them and the completely free-form hand painted finishes further assure the uniqueness of every piece. A clear professional finish is applied for durability, longevity and weather-resistance and allows for use indoors or outside (of course they should be brought indoors during winter weather).

I am endlessly fascinated with the versatility and artistic potential of a substance we usually see as utilitarian and strictly structural. In fact, you will see as you browse through my artwork that cement can be taken to the same level as many other art mediums…

I can create a custom leaf or bowl specifically for you from the leaves and flowers in your own yard or mine. Have a favorite tree in your yard? I can take the leaves from that tree and incorporate them into a custom bowl for you to use as a birdbath or as a decorative object in your home... on a coffee table, kitchen island or countless other spots that will benefit from a focal point of unique and personal artwork.

Because they are based on nature and use vibrant neutral colors, my designs are versatile enough to work perfectly anywhere... from your dining room table, living room or kitchen to your own summer garden, porch or deck.

My obsession with cement began while mixing “mud” with my father (who was a mason by trade) when I was only 11 years old. (Thus the name “A Mason's Daughter.) The beauty and versatility of cement and stone has long had it's hold on me. I'm sure it always will as I have more designs ideas crowding my brain than my hands can keep up with! I also love painting and gardening so this art form has given me a way to incorporate all three of my passions together.
