Since childhood I have always been involved in one form of art or another. My great grandmother taught me to make doll clothing. I enjoyed this so much that when I ran out of dolls, I would catch lizards and dress them! From my grandmother I learned to design and sew for others and myself. This came in handy when I worked for Suzy Creamcheese, a boutique that catered to celebrities and socialites.

 

In the 80’s I discovered Swarovski crystals and used to embellish everything I created; wedding gowns, hats, hair accessories, hand-painted clothing and finally, clay.

 

In clay, I create one-of-a-kind pieces which I embellish with acrylic paint, gold and silver leaf, various stones and beads and, of course, Swarovski crystals.

 

In November of 2015, my cat, Dori and I left my home in Houston and moved to Fountain Hills, Arizona to start a new, creative adventure.
