My work focuses on the color, texture, and character of the natural materials that are my inspiration.  My paintings are mixed media on carved wood panels contrasted by areas of shattered glass and other assemblage.  They are non-representational; texture, color, and simple forms are paired with titles that suggest, but do not impose, the theme or subject of the painting.

My jewelry begins with Lake Superior beach stones that are drilled, grooved, carved and polished.  The stones are combined with a variety of beads into one-of-a-kind necklaces.

In all of my art, the ordinary and the broken are transformed into the lustrous new – a visual reminder of the unseen beauty and light that shines through all of creation.
