In early 2018 I left a 28-year professional curatorial career to pursue a long-held desire to make art full-time. 

My work is influenced by my 28 years of curatorial experience, bolstered with metals study at the University of Iowa, and workshops taught by Raissa Bump, Jessica Calderon, and Gabriel Craig. I attended University of the Arts for graduate school.

In addition to unique jewelry, I make montages; objects, beads and papers combined with painting, printing, and sewing. My most recent series is titled "A History of Jewelry According to The Royals." 

I have exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally. Several galleries and shops currently sell my work, including FUEL, Mt. Vernon, IA, Hudson River Gallery, Iowa City, IA, Gilded Pear Gallery, Cedar Rapids, IA, and Gravers Lane Gallery, Chestnut  Hill, PA.

Please contact me if you would like to show my work or carry it in your shop or gallery.

I want to think again of dangerous and noble things.
I want to be light and frolicsome.
I want to be improbable beautiful and afraid of nothing,
as though I had wings. -Mary Oliver
