Living my life between California and St. Croix USVI. I design jewelry and fiber art. I have always made things. Retiring early from corporate America has allowed me to focus all of my time on the things I create. All of my work is inspired primarily by the natural world around me. Colors, shapes, textures, people, events - all are a great influence in how I shape the stones or fabrics/fibers I work with. Much of my jewelry work is made with Dinosaur Bone and the potential, imagined story of each piece I work with is awesome to me.

Beautiful new work!
