About

The Vintage Key : Art with a Vintage Twist

It's pretty simple. I do what I love and I do it all the time. After loosing my mom, dad and daughter, I started making jewelry and painting all the time.I never wished or intended to go back to the work force. I work out of my house where I can be close to everything I love, my family, and yes that includes all my animals, flowers, music and books.

The joy in creating smiles on peoples’ faces as my jewelry brings back fun memories of growing up, or of family heirlooms they have forgotten. By combining authentic vintage watch parts, typewriter parts, buttons, tokens, and other objects from past ages with different metals, filigrees, and patinas. I enjoy provoking emotional remembrance.

My work is currently for sale in several boutiques and Art Gallery’s around the country. I was recently honored to be featured in an article for the Journal & Courier’s Sunday paper titled “A Special Type of Design.” Another exhibit I was proud to be invited to was “GO FIGURE: Creatively Transforming Our Environment” in the McDonald Gallery in the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. It was chosen as one of the top five out of over forty artists, and my work was showcased concurrently with illustrations from the Saturday Evening Post.

    Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy finding tattered objects that are no longer being used—things that can be given a new life with a new function but still maintain their integrity. You can find me featured in 'Jewelry Affaire' Magazine.
