My love affair with creating began as a child spending every afternoon in my parent's floral and antique shop. As the only daughter of artistic parents, my eyes were always able to see the beauty and potential in even the strangest things. On one trip to an auction with my parents, we came home with a rickshaw, a wicker coffin, a king’s sword and scepter, and a laboratory skeleton. Many days like that one fueled my imagination and eccentricity.
Over time, having experimented in all types of art, my favorites became writing, jewelry design, and interior design. They all allow me to bring a feeling or an image to life through art that can be shared everyday with everyone around you. "Discarding the Rag Doll" marks my third published title. My journalistic writing has been published in several Chicagoland newspapers. My custom jewelry was shown at about 200 fine art fairs in hot Chicago summers. Art is a form of hypnosis and it has me under its spell.
Now, my feet never regret the roads they walked down nor my eyes the amazing sights seen along the way. Finding my own extraordinary side has been a journey and may you find a piece of my work that will inspire you to be who you are.
