My beadweaving uses engaging color play and rich textures to create jewelry and decorative art which draws the viewer to explore the work visually and tactilely. I weave gemstones and tiny seed beads into elaborate designs by hand, using traditional, contemporary and original beading techniques. My inspiration comes from nature, other artwork and from everyday life. A particular gemstone or color combination can spawn a new design. I choose not to limit myself to a single genre. Instead one piece may have classic elegance while the next can encompass ethnic, contemporary or avant-garde design elements that are unexpected and unusual. In addition to my past focus on jewelry design I am also working with beaded textiles to create decorative and functional artwork. I seek to create unique art that both continually challenges my and brings joy to the collector.
