Northwest By Southwest


My artistic career in the Pacific Northwest was inspired by some of the most influential names in modern glass. I create glass beaded jewelry, rivet lined beads and small assembled glass sculptures. After a long career in the Northwest, I relocated to the warm and beautiful Southwest.  It has been an inspiration of new colors, textures and subjects providing new designs to explore and create.

Creating Relationships


The focus in my artistic career has been to enjoy creating, directed by my inner spirit, but more importantly to share my knowledge and expertise with others. Shared creativity feeds my soul. During your search for a meaningful piece I would like to help you through the process hoping that your purchase  becomes the first of many. 

Creative Process


I pride myself in the quality and attention to detail of my wearable art pieces.   My work is designed and created from beginning to end in my Scottsdale, Az. studio.  I have consistently pursued classes to fine tune and upgrade my ability to bring a cutting edge look to my work.  My hope is that clients will enjoy wearing One of a Kind,  wearable art as much as I enjoy my creative process.
