Islesford - I notice the edges and angles of my surroundings as often as I notice light and color. The lines of an incidental placement of tools can inspire my next piece of work. My designs are influenced by the random simplicity of life on a small island, as well as my sense humor and the latest techniques I have learned.

I make jewelry because it is the most fun way I know to employ myself. I love working with my hands and having a wearable outlet for my art. Beads play a large part in my designs.  I like to create my own beads and components, or use pieces that are handmade by others, before I add any commercial findings to my work.
