I am a 48 year resident of Nevada and have lived all over the world. My work is influenced by the sights and cultures of Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific as well as all corners of the United States.
I trained in textile and design in San Francisco when I was 46 years old. My work includes pieces in the permanent collection of the White House, in Washington DC, as well as in the Nevada Historical Society.
I am compelled to create the work I do whether it is one of a kind pieces of jewelry or beaded handbags. I feel great joy when I am able to take a concept in my mind (or someone else’s) and manipulate a flat piece of metal to take on a life and spirit of its own.
