My love of nature started at a very young age. I spent most of my time outdoors, playing in the woods near my home. I explored many trails and spent most of my days looking for rocks and other natural treasures. As I got older my passion for the outdoors continued and so did my collection of beautiful things I found over the years.
As an artist, I enjoy working with different mediums and learning new techniques. Through my research, I learned of Electroforming and the ability to preserve organics such as flowers and butterflies with copper which was something that really peaked my interest. I already had a diverse collection of natural objects and electroforming provided a way for me to protect these treasures and transform them into jewelry.
Today, not much has changed. I am still enchanted by all the wonders created by Mother Nature. A piece of moss, a tiny insect or a stone found along a river bank, all of these are treasures to me and I enjoy using them in my art.
I incorporate plants, insects, natural crystals and gemstones to create one of a kind pieces with a rustic style. My jewelry collection includes electroformed copper organics, mixed media, resin and wire wrapped necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings.
