These cards are my favourite! Tasteful for any occasion and as beautiful as the artist herself.

Seller was helpful with answering any questions and shipped it out quickly. The ring is gorgeous and incredibly well made - I haven't taken it off since I bought it.

About

Tell me your stories, and I will make your memories sparkle.

I am the daughter of creative parents in the fields of Science; a Veterinarian/Wood Carver and Registered Nurse/Poet. I grew up straddling the city, and life on the farm in Ontario, Canada.

At Dalhousie University, in Halifax Nova Scotia, I began my studies in Marine Biology. In my first year at Dalhousie, I found Art. And never looked back! I transferred to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University where I enjoyed many exceptional experiences in the form of hiking and kayaking on the Ocean, beautiful friendships, and the beginnings of a strong, challenging, career in Art. I am so thankful and honoured, to have participated in art programs and residencies around the world. Some highlights include representing Canada in the sculpture competition at the IV Jeux de la Francophonie, being awarded a full scholarship to the MFA program at the University of California, Davis, and having had numerous works collected by the National and Provincial Art Banks of Canada.

I am also a Master Carver, having worked for over eighteen years as a designer and wax carver in the giftware industry. I have carved beautiful green wax into everything from picture frames to box tops to teeny-tiny post earrings (smaller than 1.5cm in any dimension), all to scale, and destined to enter large-scale production.

Thinking of jewellery as small-scale sculpture, I feel that it is a language that I am fluent in. I know that in sculpture, there lies a translation for all things.

Happily tucked into my beautiful studio in the West end of Toronto, I offer my experience as a thoughtful, inventive, creative maker (who also loves a good story). I would love to work with you, using all of the experience that I have gleaned over the years, to create custom, wearable sculptures that mark meaningful moments in your life, or the lives of the ones closest to you.
