I have always been a student of nature and have split my time
between the study of nature as a botanist and as a collector of
natural stone. I studied lapidary as a teen and still enjoy bringing
out the beauty of natural materials.

I learned jewelry fabrication the old fashioned way through a
classic apprenticeship to a european trained master jeweler in the
late 60s and early 70’s. I developed a career in environmental
science, but have kept the tools of the jeweler’s trade and would
build occasional pieces for special occasions and loved ones.

Over the last 6 years I have reconnected with my art in a more
asserted way and now exhibit my work in juried shows. Jewelry has
always been the media I love as an artist and getting my work out in
front of the public has been a very rewarding experience. i am still
learning and growing each year.
