I love color and it has a strong influence in my jewelry and my photography.
My jewelry is features designs in sterling silver using the lost wax technique and I incorporate semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls and Swarovski crystals in my designs. This year I am venturing into fabrication with copper and bronze materials and am exploring the technique of copper etching with exciting results.
My photography focuses on the California coastline and gardens. Both offer stunning opportunities to capture bold colors and interesting lighting effects.
My art is a great escape for me and helps me focus on the beauty and majesty that surrounds me.
