I have always looked for the creative path. I remember as a young girl carving my initials into my parents headboard (no applause for that one), being kidded for mixing odd spices, infusing new life into organizations with entrepreneurial left turns, and sometimes just thinking on a different plane. I have manipulated words, paints, plants, fiber, glass, beads, and metal. This “art in my heart” keeps tickling me at odd times to mix the ordinary with the odd.
I combine metal smithing with kumihimo braiding and wire weaving to invent the unexpected. I love contrast in form and similarity in color. I dream of new designs, smiling in my sleep.
