I was born in Germany and prior to making Reno my home,
I have lived in India and Canada.
I have been a textile artist for 30 years and my work has been exhibited in Nevada and Washington.
Recently I have been exploring the Japanese KUMIHIMO Technique. When designing each piece, special attention is given to the selection of the stone, colors and the type of fibers to be used for the braided necklace to best compliment each stone. Each work is one of a kind and therefore it is impossible to replicate. The same technique can also be used to create beaded bracelets and necklaces. I have also started to work with Precious Metal Clay and have created 999% silver pendants.
