I am a Water Artist who works in both Paint and Jewelry Design.
My current painting series focuses on Water Spirits... Mermaids, Mermen, Gods, Goddesses, Spirit Guides and Protectors. I prefer to work in mixed media, most often acrylic and fine art paper on Claybord. My paintings seem to take on a life of their own as I work, and much of my direction comes from dreams and meditation as the piece progresses.
In my jewelry, my process is all about finding beautiful pearls in my travels and making them into simply stunning earrings... classic, elegant and timeless, the kind that go with everything.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and then moved to Los Angeles, where I studied Art and Design at the prestigious Otis Art Institute and Parsons School of Design. I most recently received a Certificate in Gemology from Santiago Canyon College in Orange, and I'm a Certified Pearl Specialist with the Cultured Pearl Association of America.
A free spirit, I've traveled nationally and internationally and have won numerous awards, while calling Los Angeles home for over thirty six years.
