The daily launching of my three boys into their swirling, testosterone-driven activities compels me towards this creative process as a uniquely feminine endeavor. Every new piece is ‘born’ with its own voice, all carry my signature bead: the shell… and each pays homage to the First Artist.
Majoring in Fine Arts, I have always been fascinated by the design elements of Nature. My careers in Graphic Arts and Animation are applied as I express a unique sense of design and entertainment by combining the gems of earth and sea.
In my travels, I gather the most visually exciting materials from around the globe to my studio in California.
Whether tiny fresh-water pearls are paired with Swarovski crystals, or luscious Tahitian pearls with Bombay diamonds, these designs know no bounds. Rare Dominican Larimar and hand-blown Venetian glass are stars in this unique collection. Solid gold and Sterling silver findings set with precious and semi-precious stones, make each piece “Art for Your Frame”.
