Art Shows & Other Places to See My Work

Currently, my work centers around my original wearable artpieces as a jewelry designer. Yet for more than 30 years I made freelance illustration my career — originally the focus of my bachlor's degree in Fine Arts.

I discovered Precious Metal Clay (PMC) in 1999 and have been hooked ever since. Pursuing this path, I received a PMC Guild Certification in 2000 to teach others about the art of metal clay. In 2005, I was invited to join the Senior Instructor Certification Program for the Rio Rewards.

Featured internationally in both books and publications, my work is highly recognizable. Below, are more details. Feel free to CONTACT ME if you have any questions or are interested in a private workshop. Thanks for viewing my site.
