Jewelry Design, Watercolor, Acrylics
As an artist, I am drawn to organic and free-form design, the freedom to let go and create in a natural, organic and imperfect way. Some of my paintings begin with a purpose. Others evolve through the layers, directing their own path; most often through negative space techniques. I use the same organic free-form technique in my jewelry design. One is the meticulous, the other freeing and expressive. Jewelry and painting are my perfect mix. They each entice, encourage and challenge the other, always spurring each other on. So, now my weeks are a mix of both my loves.
