About

From culinary to mixed media, creative expression has always been my passion....

After over 25 years in the culinary industry as a Chef, Caterer, Restaurant Manager, Cafe Owner and any other possible position, I decided to take my creativity in a different direction.

My personal form of expression over the years has mainly been in my cooking. The presentations, tastes, textures, colors and aromas are variables that I have found to be exciting. Food is a way of connecting with others, and when made with love is an exchange of comfort and friendship for those involved. I have moved on to another season where I can still use most of those factors but the pieces are here to stay. They are visual, colorful, creative and permanent.

Art has always been a huge part of my life. I have an extremely creative family. My mother was a drama teacher for many years and introduced us to all things cultural throughout our lives. She has a true and deep appreciation for beautiful scenery, nature, colors, paintings, music and poetry. I believe that this original influence forged a path for her children and has added a dimension within each of us that has been positive and lasting. Steve Purcell, my husband of sixteen years, and I try to emphasize creativity and art in our home with our children and we hope that the arts will be a permanent part of their lives.

My current concentration is on Custom Stamped Metals, Metalsmithing, Bracelets, Charms, with Steampunk and Vintage pieces. I use a great deal of recycled and upcycled components in my work and love the thrill of the hunt for these treasured finds. Each piece is carefully made through a multi-step process. The Stamped Metals have inspirational messages that I find to be personally uplifting enough to share. I am slowly incorporating some Silversmithing into some of my designs and hope to learn more about using gemstones over this next year to add a little sparkle to the jewelry. It is a work in progress, as is everything.

The lure of the torch, heat, hammers, drills, files, patinas, pliers, solder, beads, chains and all mixed metals was just too much to resist. This venture has tapped into my senses and has a strong motivational pull with a renewed passion. I love it!

My goal is to inspire creativity in everyone I meet. Be it jewelry, painting, writing or something else - just try it, make it and share it!
