Passion Found in Faraway Land

I have been enamored with the story objects hold for as long as I can remember. From the handmade books I write and construct, to the wood carving and painting workshops I teach, to the Japanese inspired pure silver jewelry I create, my art is built on sharing history. I’ve always been intrigued with the essence of the human story. Where people come from and what they are passionate about captures the core of the human spirit. I believe everyone has a story to tell and every object holds within it a little bit of its past. My mission is to inspire others to find and connect with the history inside themselves.

Living in Tokyo for 7 years gave me a new perspective on my creative work. When I discovered silver clay in a mega art store in Tokyo, I fell in love with the medium instantly. Carving hand-drawn Japanese images helped me create a rustic style all my own. I enjoy creating little icons of life in Tokyo, where every turn holds a treasure yet to be discovered. Scouring the antique markets in Tokyo for Japanese artifacts and textures also inspires my creations.

One of my most popular items has been the Japanese Memory Charm Necklace™, a perfect reminder of one’s life in Japan, and a great memento to spark stories back home.

I've have recently moved from Tokyo to Texas where I continue to be inspired by my surroundings. I'm still creating Japanese items, but am trying to branch out in other ways. I continue to travel back and forth to Tokyo where I feel most at home.

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul.

    I found myself living in Tokyo the end of 2005. As a trailing spouse without a job, I honed my creative skills doing something I never thought I'd do... I started making jewelry.
