All of my work is either one-of-a-kind, limited edition or custom pieces. They are bold, simple and makes a statement. Individually designed and created, I use high quality and unique findings, natural stones, gems and pearls, and other natural materials accented with glass, precious and semi-precious metals.
I love the creative process of combining colors, texture and design. Using organic materials allow me to create work that brings out the natural beauty of imperfection. I am particularly attracted to using materials that "have a story", such as an archaeologically discovered rock, or 250 year old beads made with Dead Sea sea salts and clay, or old Italian handmade glass beads from centuries ago, rustic unpolished amber beads, unprocessed aquamarine or even a new and exciting invention of man made components.
I occasionally enjoy doing custom work for my customers because it allows me to connect the energy and essence of the individual with my art and vice versa. Ultimately, that is the purpose for what I do. It is very rewarding.
Please join me in my creative journey by exploring your own. We are all born with the gift of creativity in different ways. We are the artist of our own lives.
My work is available at The Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, Art On Broadway Gallery in Beaverton, the Portland Lansu Chinese Gardens and occasionally at Paloma Clothing in Portland (Hillsdale area) and in various fine arts festivals throughout the region.
