I'm a life-long New Yorker, planted in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Artistic endeavors have been my platform to engage in a dialog with the public on a number of environment issues. My environment inspires my work and provides natural, ephemeral, gems to curate into my body of work. 


As I spread my roots, my work grows and a line of wearable jewelry has developed.  My wearable line highlights the natural world by combining cast natural objects with hand-fabration techniques. 


This one-woman operation seeks to nurture environmental activism one jewelry box at a time.
