Get to Know

As far back as I can remember I was always making something. And early on I turned this enterprise into pocket change. As a kid, I made tiny little face pins from old pantyhose and barrettes with woven ribbons that a local gift shop sold on consignment. I jumped to hand-painted t-shirts in high school. Photography was the thing of the moment in college and after college I discovered rubber stamping. Over the years I have jumped from medium to medium, mixing and matching techniques and finding a common thread no matter what the material. In the last decade I have focused on rubber stamps and silkscreen imagery in my work. My current obsessions include ceramic jewelry and art jewelry using dominoes and other odd materials. I live in New York and there is no end to the inspiration I find in this city that never sleeps. My work usually involves vibrant colors, graphics, text,and texture. My style is off beat, funky and eclectic. The act of creating brings me so much joy, but I still get a little thrill when someone actually wants to buy something I have made. I am always figuring out what kind of crafty thing I can make next, or purchasing more craft supplies. Craft supplies are my weakness. That and chocolate.
