I consider my artistic talent God given and my most recent explorations have been with polymer clay.  With these pliable clay blocks I produce the look of turquoise, wood and brass and many of my “statement” jewelry pieces exhibit these looks. Although I use a variety of styles and techniques, tactile qualities and design are often a common thread in my creations.  Recently, I have returned to the use of mosaics in my jewelry as can be seen in my wall art, combining unique pieces into an exciting color scheme with unexpected 3-D components.
