As a mixed media jewelry artist, I became inspired by all the colors and textures of nature. After 20 years, my jewelry designs took me to mixed media on canvas where I was able to add another dimension of play and creative expression. Inspired by the mud pots of Yellowstone, I recall the creamy neutrals, ochres, reds and yellows melding together creating captivating visuals. Like the alleyways of Venice, I attempt to interpret the textures of ancient patina rich walls and magniﬁcent doors. Collaging and mixed media is just plain fun. A new place to create, play and learn. I often draw inspiration from my own pieces encouraging me to do better, do more, see more. As I move forward, my goal is to inspire, amuse and delight.
