Since 1995 I have been creating jewelry in my home studio, first in the high country of Colorado and now on the island of Maui in the Hawai'ian Islands. Here we are raising our own family in my dad's tradition: surrounded by art. From mountains to sea natural beauty plays a role in my designs.
As a child, art was present in my home as my father was a sculptor and art teacher. His nurturing sparked my creativity and vision. There was never a time that he was not working on a project, even until his last days he was creating and building his masterpieces.
The natural world, modern art, and architecture inspire me from conception of my designs through the final stages of their creation. I enjoy the balancing act between form and function. Sometimes rustic, sometimes polished, I have always loved making wearable art.
