Skills and Techniques

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honors in painting. After many years of working as a corporate graphic designer, I returned to my double loves of oil painting and jewelry design. For painting, I work in oils on medium to large stretched canvas. As far as jewelry design goes, I work with vitreous enamel on copper or silver. It's fused in a 1500 degree kiln to become glass permanently fused to metal, each piece being one-of-a-kind.

Get to Know

Drawing, painting, and jewelry were very early passions for me as a child. I always knew I'd grow up to be an artist. It all came so easily to me. Like a gift to be shared...



After a long career in commercial art and graphic design, the life-long desire to create fine art surfaced again. A facination with fire and metal evolved, and my love for enameling was born.



Much love and attention to craftsmanship go into each piece that I create. I like to combine the ancient art of enameling with contemporary techniques and jewelry design.
