Since childhood I’ve been involved in one form of art or another.  My great grandmother taught me to make doll clothing, I enjoyed this so much that when I ran out of dolls my cousin (David) would help me catch lizards & mice so I could
dress them.

 From my grandmother I learned to design and sew for others and myself. This came in handy when I worked at “Suzy Creamcheese” a boutique that catered to celebrities and socialites. I designed and custom made many things while working there, costume jewelry, masks, evening wear, wedding dresses, hats for the Kentucky Derby and much more.

Anything that glitters and sparkles has always caught my eye.  1980 I discovered Swarovski crystals and have used them on everything  from inlaying them in wood to the art work I create now. I love the idea of creating art with diminution, Mix Media and fantasy gives me the opportunity to do that.

“The world of reality has its limits;

The world of imagination is boundless”
