"I am a girl at heart that has always possessed a strong desire to create. My hope is that my designs will become a good muse in your life!
My artwork reflects a collage of experiences starting with my love of art as a child to the unending art, crafts, and jewelry classes I have enjoyed over the years. I am eclectic in my design process. In my jewelry I use a variety of metals including 14k gold, silver, copper and bronze. I also dabble with art jounaling and like to doodle notecards.
My Tucson studio is my sanctuary. A place of thought and dreamy abstraction. In addition to creating, I love teaching group and private classes in Precious Metal Clay."

"I believe learning should be relaxing, fun and easy and that students learn in a variety of ways. My job as a teacher is to help you create your vision in metal!"
