A little about the Artist

I received my formal training as an artist with a BS from Skidmore College and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology School for American Craftsmen. In addition to being a jewelry artist I have also taught at RIT and Roberts Wesleyan College. The jewelry I create is inspired by the natural elements of design I see in the world around me in my travels. I have a motor home which provides me this opportunity as well as meeting and building ties with people across the country. Photography is a necessity and a joy in my life. It allows me to document visual inspirations and the wonderful experiences I encounter in my journeys.

About their Business

I have been a jewelry artist for over twenty-five years and live in the Finger Lakes region of western NY state. I market my work in galleries and shops across the country as well as in shows and on-line sites. I work with silver, natural stones, freshwater pearls and leather.
