After decades of exploring photography and painting (while working a corporate job), I found my calling in natural stones. Through self-guided study, workshops and tutorials, I began creating jewelry, wearable art.
The stones and precious metals remind me of being outside, beyond boundaries (I’m an avid hiker and master gardener). I can hold it all in my hand: Smooth and rugged, order and chaos, land and sea. The color calls me. The weight. The texture — the timelessness of stone.
Shows include Missouri Botanical Garden, Norton’s Fine Art & Custom Framing, Lowe Mill Art Center.
