I was born in northern California, raised in the province of British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, and have been a resident of Ocean Springs for the past 22 years.
I draw inspiration for my jewelry designs from family and the soulful artwork of the Coastal First Nations people of Canada. Perhaps most importantly, my greatest inspiration comes from the sea where I have spent my entire life. The jewelry reflects my endless fascination with it and its bountiful treasures.
The jewelry I make encompasses a variety of elements including precious metal clay, brass, copper, silver and bronze. I use both natural and precious stones, as well as sea glass in many creations.
I am a member of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Gem and Mineral Society and the Mississippi Arts Commission, always striving to expand my knowledge of my craft. I find joy in creating unique pieces made with love and a touch of sea magic.
