I have been designing jewelry since I was 10 years old when we lived in Silver City, New Mexico. I was inspired by the Culture, beauty and art of New Mexico. At the age of 12 we moved to Sheridan, Wyoming. We live in the valley below the Big Horn Mountains which has its own beauty and story to tell. I am very curious and have taught myself different techniques in Jewelry design and metal smithing as well. I graduated Sheridan College with an Associate’s Degree in Fine Art in 1992. In 2014, I decided to leave Government service and start my own jewelry business. My studio is located in my home (one of the bedrooms). Currently, displaying year round at InColor Gallery & Design in the nearby historic town of Buffalo, Wyoming. My work has been in 3 different juried shows on the campus of Sheridan College, Wildlife Show at the Gallery on Main, Antelope Butte Show in Greybull, Dragonflies and Damsel show in New Jersey and various other venues around the country.
I've learned the most from blood, sweat and tears. It's in the struggle that you find your strength.
