Get to Know

For many years my joy has been to create off-loom beaded jewelry, patterns for beading and handmade polymer and beaded beads. My work has been shown at the Mary Black Gallery's exhibition of wearable art, "Fashion Forward: 11 Nova Scotia Designers," and in many other local gallery shows. My "cranberry and cream" cuff pattern appears in Bead & Button's, "Creative Beading Annual Vol. 4."

I teach, sell in high-quality Gallery shops, and am, joyfully, a student of craft for life.

I was born in Toronto and now live in Halifax with a bead-thieving, over-privileged cat.
