Creating jewelry from recycled or by upcycling pieces is my current creative passion. I love finding something broken or unwanted, seeing its value & transforming it into something new, beautiful & useful. Example, the Dinner at Eight bracelet on the Jewelry page features vintage black beads from broken earrings & pearls from a broken necklace, both found in a flea market grab bag.

  I'm excited that you 

can now view & buy my

jewelry, samples below,

directly through this

website! My Etsy shop

is still open & remains

a shopping option.

What's New
"Am I still painting?" Yes

& no. Over the past 10

years, I have created a

LOT of art, blessedly

selling quite a bit of it.

I have always wanted to

see selected art works

on retail items, such as

aprons, water bottles,

pillows, phone cases,

etc. And, now, thanks to

CafePress & Zazzle, I

have several items in

their marketplaces. See

some creations on the 

Gifts & Contact pages.

Still Painting... 

I have a series of seven canvas wall hangings entitled "Pieces." Each canvas features one inch squares cut from paper & discarded paintings, fabric & wallpaper samples, as well as, postage stamps from my childhood collection. PIctured below is one that is available for purchase: "Pieces: Restoration," that can be a wall hanging or displayed on a table. See my Artwork page for art that is available for purchase.


I hope my artwork, 

gifts & jewelry make you smile, 

through its whimsy, lightness, & a POP of color. “The object isn’t to make art; it’s to be in that 

wonderful state which makes art inevitable.” ~Robert Henri
