I have long been fascinated
with rocks and creating things. Growing up in the
midst of artists; I considered my childhood skills
in needlework that of a craftsperson always secure
with pattern in tow. Working with metals has opened
up a whole new world for me & led to the realization
that the secret of creative power is its spiritual
activity. My work strives to contemplate the wonder
& splendor of life.
grew up in rural San Diego, California and spent my high school years in
the late 60’s in an atmosphere
of the California
“beach lifestyle” with an inherent love of
give peace a chance and the hippie movement. A few
years later my husband & I sold our landscaping
business & moved to the Portland area , hoping to
complete my dream of living in the mountains amongst
the pine forests. After a couple of years of city
living we bought a cabin & moved to Zig Zag.
love the quiet of the mountains and having a studio
at home to create. While I still work a regular job
part time I am hoping in the near future to make my
living exclusively by what I can design.
