Within two weeks of retiring, I found myself overwhelmed with art ideas and knew right then and there that art would play a significant role in the next chapter of my life. I wasn't wrong.

I started off with photography because when I gave friends thank you photograph cards they said they were going to frame them. I will be adding digital photography to this site in the near future.

One day, I found myself at a Placitas flea market being offered a tray full of ethnic pendants when I had only wanted to purchase one! That was pretty much the signal that I needed to get into jewelry again and I haven't stopped since.

As far as mosaics, I started to take a clay class and suddenly found myself drawn to hand forming objects like birds, branches, trucks, flowers and hummingbirds. The next step came naturally - create a scene with the clay objects and surround them with hand cut stained glass tiles. Also, I've been creating napkins rings lately and adding various flowers and horses to adorn them.

Enjoy!!

    Owner, Designer, Artist

    Four years ago I took the plunge and started selling my photography, and jewelry and mosaic creations. It's almost like selling a part of me as my creations are a direct reflection of me, the colors I love and the inspiration of the world around me.

    Sitting long hours creating pieces is not healthy. Cali breaks up the long hours by jumping up in the middle of my work, bringing a ball to repeatedly throw & her to retrieve or insisting on sleeping on my lap.
