I grew up in Utah, graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, hoping to do something creative. After graduation I moved to Chicago where I found jobs in fashion but nothing creative. My husband & I moved back to Utah, I started making jewelry & I was hooked! I learned silversmithing (which I still love), I was able to buy a used torch, and the rest is history. I am largely self-taught although continue taking jewelry making classes.
My work is heavily inspired by nature but at times also reflects my real affinity for modern work. All my pieces are designed, hand-pierced, stamped & fabricated by me. I have been fortunate to have three pieces in Sundance catalog and have been featured in other magazines and catalogs.
I live in Salt Lake City with my husband, beautiful, dancing daughter Genevieve, Max the dog, Toulouse & Cleo the cats. I have a little studio in the back yard with a big window to look out at the apple tree, birds & flowers while I work
