About

I have always loved to create. As a child I spent my time drawing, crafting, reading and writing. My Grandmother made blankets by quilting and crocheting. She taught me to crochet the I was still very young. Her quilts and the hippie movement of the 60's and 70's inspired me to create patchwork clothing.

I found my love for learning only expanded as an adult. I took sewing classes through continuing education, and spent many years in college studying. I studied, art history, composition, design elements, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and ceramics.

I have worked with many mediums including metal, glass, clay and fabric. When I found wire art I fell in love. I find an inexhaustible amount of inspiration working with wire, stones and crystals. Though there are only a few basic techniques, there are so many ways to incorporate them and the possibilities are endless. My main focus is the creation of wire wrapped jewelry, yet when I want to relax, I am most drawn to crocheting. And my love of clothing inspires me to create one of a kind clothes. I never miss an opportunity to recreate clothes, making something new from someone's castaways. I cannot imagine life without creativity and I am blessed to have found ways to express that creative energy while traveling and exploring this beautiful planet. Life is a journey and I love the adventure.
