I have always been inspired by my travels along the shore or land. The scenes and vistas influence the ideas for my jewelry designs and paintings. Although each of these require the use of many different techniques and materials, my goal is to always reflect the colors and textures found in nature, while sharing my interpretations with the viewer or wearer. I enjoy the challenge of expressing natures many moods with paint, collage and mixed media.
