I always knew I wanted to work with my hands...make a living from my hands. I've had a love of and fascination with jewelry for as long as I can remember. The path unfolded before me, my senior year at UVM, discovering PMC and meeting renowned jewelry artist Celie Fago. For 9 years I was her apprentice and teaching assistant and I traveled with her around the country and abroad.
I've been selling my own jewelry locally in Vermont for over a decade. I’ve sold my work at craft shows and in galleries across Vermont and been included in exhibits in the US, UK and Japan. My work has been featured in top jewelry magazines and several books; and made the cover of the Lark book "Stitched Jewels". I love what I do and feel very lucky to being doing it!
