Originally born & raised in Vancouver, Canada, I moved to Texas in 1998 to marry. My husband and I split our time between TX and Northern CA. My goal is to one day live by the seashore once more. While my background is in Travel with short stints in retail sales & graphic design, I have taken a 2 year break to work on creating a jewelry business. As a child I spent a lot of time by the sea and in forests communing with nature, sketching and observing. I was always involved in some form of art, but, these days I am loving the process of creating wearable art. Although I am in a sense, a beginner, I have lofty ideas and big, complex designs running through my head. Maybe I have finally found my niche.
