I have been been an artist in several media since I was a child, starting with the rudiments of sketching, then painting in oil paints, acrylics, enamels and other materials to create fanciful images from imagination. My inspiration came from nature, fantasy and science fiction, and history.
In 1990 I discovered beads and jewelry making while exploring a cultural museum, and embarked on a study of beads and beadmaking, jewelry design, color theory and cultural motifs and techniques. I was especially interested in Touareg and Bedouin designs, leaves, odd color palettes [my Dark Rainbow(TM) series began at this point] and working with found objects. I started with a few simple designs and placed them with a gift shop for the holiday season. From then on I was hooked, and started my own business designing and making designer jewelry in 1993. As I create more designs I am inspired by them to design still more. Some of that is the love of color and artistry showing through, and a dedication to creating wearable art that will give the owner years of enjoyment.
I also write and publish books, and what I have for sale is mostly fiction, but I write nonfiction as well. Please take a look when it is convenient.
I hope your shopping experience is easy and pleasant. Thanks for visiting.
