About Me

 

 

 

 

I've been creating things as long as I can remember. As a child, I would take discarded items from the attic and basement and create art. I was lucky my parents never scolded me, but instead encouraged me by praising these creations.

 
 

Now, after receiving my BFA and working as a graphic designer, I have returned to my childhood ways but with a graphic design approach. My jewelry is created using recycled and repurposed items that I find. This enables my work to keep evolving.

Currently, I've been working with the copper gutters we replaced off our house, but you will also see my use of vintage tins, metal globes and doll houses, postage stamps, coins and other items that have inspired me. Besides selling my jewelry at local arts and craft fairs, you can find it at these locations.

  • Jacoby Center, Alton, IL
  • Quad City Arts, Rock Island, IL

I hope you enjoy my website and visit me again!
