About

Picture of me 2Working out of my home studio in Peterborough Ontario, I  create small pieces of art as well as jewellery, using a variety of enamelling and metal smith techniques.  I use copper, fine silver and sterling silver in my pieces, often incorporating gold accents and detail.  I try to strike a balance between boldness and eclectic delicacy in my work.

My exposure to art began at an early age, through my mother’s oil paintings and batiks. As a child I was drawn to the different and varied cultures around me.  This fascination with the beauty of diversity — its colours, textures and possibilities — continues to influence me and my work, as does sailing the seas with my nomadic seafaring father and his wife.

My motivation comes from a philosophy of what can be achieved through curiosity, experimentation and an open mind.

“Everything is so infinitely simple, so infinitely beautiful”  ~ Friedensreich Hundertwasser
