New York, NY
I started beading with my mother as a child. The colors and creative possibilities fed my soul. I went on to business school and a career in financial services, but I never strayed from my need to explore the arts and crafts. Making beautiful things became an essential part of my being. My hobby interests spanned mixed media, calligraphy, textile arts and, of course, making jewelry. When I discovered bead weaving and seed beads, my life outside of work was transformed. When I was introduced to the world of Contemporary Geometric Beadwork, my love of math, color, shapes, and textures converged in a magical way. My work at the WheatonArts festival will represent all the elements that are important to me in a curated array of earrings, necklaces, brooches, bracelets and fashion trinkets. I love to bead!
