Get to Know

I've been creative all my life and my first job was as a designer in a flower shop. Years later I graduated from Art Instruction Schools and I continue to draw and paint. Some of those art pieces have even worked their way into my one-of-a-kind artisan jewelry. Offline my work can be found in Beads to Beauty in Ruidoso New Mexico and Cloudcroft Trading Post in Cloudcroft NM. I participate in local arts and crafts fairs and my work has also been featured in Step By Step Wire Jewelry Bead Trends magazine and two calendars. I also teach classes. I design with sterling silver copper and gold-filled wire semi-precious stones seashells polymer clay and fused glass. I also enjoy using the Anasazi pottery shards I find on our ranch. I have eclectic interests from folklore and literature to culture and history and these influences are inevitably translated to my pieces.

    These last two photos are of my new display cabinets my husband built for me to use at home parties and arts and crafts fairs. Everything folds down and is self contained. So much easier to set up and take down now
