Ever since the day I found the wire jewelry book in the bookstore, I've been sculpting and bending, swirling and curling wire into jewelry. Since 2000, I've been training my hands to sculpt wire into sinuous shapes, and it hasn't been without its blood, sweat, tears, and swear words!
I am a die-hard lover of antiques and all things Victorian, even though it's not in style now.
My work is definitely NOT that sweetness-and-light Victoriana so popular in the 1980s. There is a dark edginess, a memento mori, about my work that makes it timeless.
I live in Northern Wisconsin with my husband, where we watch the deer, foxes, bears, wolves, coyotes, turkeys, and bald eagles from our living room windows.
