As a child in the 1950's, all I ever wanted to do was paint. As I grew older I expanded my knowledge too many other types of crafts such as beading, flower arrangement, music and photography. The love of sparkle drew me to design jewelry with color and form. I now create strings of wearable color. The semiprecious stones I use are designed for healing as well as pleasure.
The ability to see colors has helped with the design of jewelry. I am still painting and working on the challenge of watercolor as well as acrylics and oil - - mostly self taught. Art is a combination of never ending journey of learning and “happy accidents”.
I studied with Flo Schadler, Art Teacher and a member of Bucks County Art League, Barbara Schurick, a water color artist and Hulga Frankenfield, art professor from Moore College of Art & Design. Of course there were the TV Shows - Bill Alexander, Bob Ross and Gary Jenkins that I watch faithfully.
I enjoy creating beautiful wearable art which I also hope pleases the wearer. My goal in life is to add beauty into homes whether you are wearing one of my creations or have it on the walls.
