My work represents the aquas, blues, and pinks of the water, tans of beaches and dunes, arrays of green and brown of the forests; pink, purples, orange in sunsets and mountains, and the transformation of dawn to dusk within the circle of seasons. It also addresses beauty in form and design and echoes direct observation of the natural beauty found in earthforms of Northern New Mexico and other pristine places where I have lived and traveled. With a background in painting, my approach to jewelry design is augmented with that of a painter’s eye and artist’s palette while gaining inspiration over many years from research into the art and life of Georgia O’Keeffe.
