About

Artist, US Navy wife & mom handcrafting her way around the world!

Why you make your art? Making things is an integral part of who and what I am. I grew up in a family of doers and makers, it wasn’t until high school that I realized not everyone’s family wasn’t like that. When I am not able to be creative, I feel restless and distracted. I am happiest when I am in my studio, experimenting with new ideas. Even when things don’t turn out as I envisioned, I still appreciate the time and the knowledge that I gained in the process.

What inspires you to make it? I find myself inspired in unexpected ways. I am strongly influenced by history, vintage, colors and nature. Picking up a package of polymer clay in any color starts me on thoughts of all the things that come in that color, be it flowers or dishes, or even the blouse I’m wearing, from there I start to experiment, tinker and fiddle forming, twisting, adding and subtracting until the piece reflects my vision.
I see beauty in the things others have left behind. This influences me to create art jewelry made as assemblages and ‘memory works’, which revive the original allure the pieces held while putting on a fresh, modern spin.

What it signifies or represents- The things I make are a direct extension of what I feel. It represents a side of myself that is not always easily expressed to the outside world. A sort of “happy and positive Jekyll and Hyde” if you will, in outward appearance I am a conservative housewife, but in my head I am totally free to reinvent myself with each new project.

What’s unique or special about how you make it- I am not afraid to make a mistake artistically, which allows me to try and concoct something new where there was nothing before. Mixing mediums, techniques and lots of tinkering are when the most serendipitous things occur for me.

And briefly, what it means to you. If I was told that I could no longer be creative, it would be utterly devastating to me. I cannot fathom more than a day or two where some aspect of inventiveness is not permitted. When the things of life prevent me from physically working in my studio, I am still thinking of what I would do if I was there, it’s a never ending process in my psyche.

I believe that the beauty of mixed medium jewelry, is the freedom of expression for both the artist and the wearer. I incorporate polymer clay, metals, wire, beads, and a variety of repurposed, found objects into a creation that is as unique as the person who chooses to wear it.
