It is through the close observation of nature that my inspiration is ignited and sustained. Painting (watercolor and oils) continues to free my imagination and provide many opportunities for questions to be answered through the medium, for happy accidents and grace to influence the final piece.
Jewelry, on the other hand, excites and inspires my design desires.
Together they help keep me on a creative path that is ever changing.
