I have a Fine Arts Degree and have worked in many media including watercolor. I discovered beading through my daughter and have enjoyed applying the same aspects of color, motion, and perspective design that I learned in my formal education and over 25 years of painting and drawing to jewelry design.
I have taught beading and micro macrame at national shows, retail stores and bead societies throughout the United States and the United Kingdom for more than 15 years. I have also written 4 “how to” books on Micro Macrame, which have sold over 15,000 copies worldwide.
My watercolors hang in private collections in Hawaii, Texas, Australia, California, Washington, Arizona, New York and Florida. I have been fortunate to be accepted at many juried shows and have won numerous awards. My paintings have shown at several one and two-person shows in Bay Area galleries, including Olive Hyde and Adobe. I have sold through galleries in Maui, Napa Valley, Sonoma, Carmel and Durango, Colorado.
