My fine art and jewelry creations stem from a love of the outdoors and my garden. My creations are based on the beauty of the world around me. A desire to paint on canvases that are not limited in size and shape and embracing the concept that art can be wearable is what led me to start creating my own line of jewelry. Whether creating fine art or jewelry, wandering around with a camera is a great way for me to capture moments in time that can be used later for one of my creations. Whether walking in my own garden or visiting public gardens, I am constantly stockpiling photos and ideas creating inspirations for future artwork. Sometimes it is a mish-mash of ideas from things I have seen, photos I have taken and thoughts that just pop into my mind, day or night, that help form the framework for my newest pieces.
