Inspiration for my art comes from biology and the microscopic world.
Here one finds the amazing forms through which life manifests itself:
cells and parts of cells, tissues, organs and even whole plants and
insects. All these forms display their vitality with shimmering lifeaffirming
colors. Many of my paintings are on display at the Hannon
Library of Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
Original and unique hand fabricated sterling silver jewelry. My designs
are focused around my own custom cut stones. I take interesting rough
material and create unique polished cabochons. I hand fabricate all of
my jewelry in sterling silver using traditional silver-smithing techniques.
The jewelry I create is one of a kind with an earthy, enduring quality.

I have been fortunate to spend much of my career as an Ecologist and
my recreation time, exploring nature. Every square inch of our natural
world contains something scientifically interesting and artistically
beautiful. I like to pick out one aspect of the environment and hold it
up for inspection, with all its imperfections and variation. By changing
perspective, focus, season and habitat, I have an infinite palette and
an unlimited source of inspiration.
