I am an exhibited artist and jewelry designer with a BFA in drawing and painting from The University of Georgia in Athens, GA. After exhibiting my kiln-fused glassware and primitivist style paintings in various southeastern galleries, I moved to NYC and learned the art of making jewelry. Recently I began my own line of jewelry. A constant source of inspiration for my work has been a childhood love of horses and dogs. I also love to play with color and texture. Personally, I currently have three dogs and a young son; many of my ideas for art and jewelry are developed on my daily walks with the dogs and my son.
