MEET THE ARTIST

My journey into jewelry design started when my grandfather gave me a rock tumbler at the age of eight. Inspired by travels with my husband and family, and by the beauty in nature that surrounds me, I have worked with a wide variety of materials & mediums. I enjoy the challenge new materials offer, but I seem to always return to my first love, copper wire. Currently, I am exploring the sculptural world of cold connection copper wire to create unique, whimsical art pieces. Over the past 22 years, I have shown my work in various shows, both regionally & nationally, and was a finalist in the 2018 Bead & Button Annual Bead Artistry Competition for Fibonacci’s Revenge (pictured). When I’m not in my studio creating new work, I am managing partner of The Palette & The Page, an art gallery in Elkton, Maryland, where I show my art and teach workshops year round.
