I have recently retired from teaching in public schools to devote more time to my art and teaching workshops around the country. I consider myself not so much a jeweler, but rather a “maker of wearable art.” My interests include digital art, mixed media collage/assemblage, sculpture, and jewelry. I prefer to work with alternative materials and non-traditional techniques when creating art.

My work has been featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry and Jewelry Artist magazines, Susan Lenart-Kazmer’s book Making Connections, Steel Wire Jewelry by Brenda Schweder, Steampunk Style Jewelry by Jean Campbell and Metal Style by Karen Dougherty.
