Artists never stop working; always looking for new ideas, new materials and new connections. As a ‘colorist’ my eye is constantly seeking out new color combinations and hues which is reflected in my work.
I enjoy working with women on their jewelry selections, it pleases me to know that I will be with them for that special event or just knocking around the house in a new statement piece because they can.
Originally an exhibiting artist in NYC with large oil paintings I found myself working at The National Academy of Design where I met many of America's top artists including Alex Katz, Wolf Kahn, and Julian Schnabel.
It was during that time that I realized how much work is involved in creating an artwork and beyond a sprinkle of 'magic' here and there, it all comes down to the discipline of creating something beautiful.
In 2016 I began designing jewelry and have discovered how much I enjoy working with women on their jewelry selections; it pleases me to know that I will be with them for that special event or just plain knocking around the house in a new statement piece 'because they can'.
I use the best materials I can find including glass beads from Japan, pearls from China, semi-precious gems from India and metals from the U.S.
Love what I'm doing and hope it shows.
