A Passion for Art
My art has been centered around my life in Marin County and my travels around the world. Through it all my eye picks up the nuances of nature and of my surroundings. It is through close observation that my inspiration is ignited and sustained. Watercolor painting and jewelry designs continue to free my imagination and provide many opportunities for questions to be answered through the medium, for happy accidents and grace to influence the final piece. I love being a creative person.
In my jewelry designs I continue to look to nature for inspiration; leaves, twigs and textures all merge to become the base from which new images and ideas flow.

Oil and Acrylic
Every once in a while I get the bug to paint with oils and acrylics. I enjoy the process and hopefully the outcome!

In 1980 I met my dear friend Angela Manno in my move to New York City. She taught me how to paint on silk and since then it has been part of the triumvirate of my creative talents. I use nature as my inspirations as the thread throughout all my art – scarves are no different. They flow with patterns, flowers and organic designs.
I can find inspiration almost anywhere – once I start looking.
