As far as I remember, I was always looking to paint, sketch and create art in different media. I worked in clay, pastels and charcoal.
When I went into the business world, I never fulfilled my greatest pleasure in creating art.
In 2010 I moved to Arizona from New Jersey. I live in the Rio Verde Foothills. While walking one morning, I stumbled onto beautiful stones, pieces of cactus and wood. I felt I could combine these beautiful pieces from the earth of Arizona into jewelry. I get additional inspiration from the beauty of the sunrises,sunsets, mountains and surrounding landscape. The beauty of Arizona has energized my soul.
