The Purveyor of Whimsy
I'm pretty much self-taught. I have a couple years of design school under my belt, but for the most part, I'm just winging it. I'm inspired by anything French, vintage ephemera and embellishments, historical costume and the 1920's. I often feel as though I'm living in the wrong century, and that is reflected in the types of work I create.
I've been creating digital collages in one form or another since 2005 or thereabouts. I have a background in costume jewelry design and assembly, so it was only natural that my collages found their way onto jewelry pieces (in miniature, of course) as well.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my designs. And thank you also to everyone who has placed an order from me. It means the world to me that you like my work. If you're interested in custom pieces, please keep me in mind. I love designing and creating unique treasures that are truly one-of-a-kind.
