I received my undergraduate from the University of Minnesota with a dual degree in Art and Finance. I earned my Bench and Graduate Jeweler Certificates at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco.
I taught jewelry fabrication at Minnetonka & Hopkins Center for the Arts in Minnesota. I volunteered at Hopkins High School for Terry Chamberlin in the jewelry program.  I am an emerging artist who designs and fabricates one of a kind or limited edition of fine artistic jewelry. The essence of my work is a play between movement and sensuality. My work is based on hidden messages and healing qualities in the universe.
I am currently in graduate school at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago for Art Therapy and my work is at BJeweled in the Gold Coast, Chicago.

Artist Statement
My work is my spiritual journey. It represents where I have been and where I am now. My intent is to provide healing energies to the wearers for their journeys.

My focus is to explore my passions by using sensual shapes, kinetic energy and vibrant qualities.

I want people to resonate with my designs, where ever they are in life. My message of self love is transmitted from my hands to their hearts.
