All good art evolves from the same simple principles of design…harmony balance and rhythm. Educated in New York I studied privately under a number of extraordinary teachers whose vision and insight led me to fulfilling my artistic pursuits and future career as an art teacher and designer in many mediums.. Later pursuing jewelry design as yet another means of creative expression I have exhibited my jewelry in numerous Fine Art Festivals throughout the Chicagoland area showing a large selection at galleries resorts and boutiques both here and abroad. Having traveled extensively I draw most of my inspiration from tribal and ethnic cultures. Most of my semi-precious stones and findings are from all over the world. The introduction of bronze and copper to my already extensive collection of silver has been well-received. Husband Tom and I live part of the year in St Kitts.
