Artist Statement

I was educated in the art program at Syracuse University and then at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. After engaging in a career as Art Director/Creative Director in the Film, TV and Cable industry, I took my creativity to an arena which allows more self expression. My jewelry has been created with such elements as gems, semi-precious stones, pearls, crystals, sterling silver and gold. A year ago, I discovered the medium of precious metal clay. I've enjoyed the great flexibility of this medium and the opportunity to design pieces that are truly original. These pieces can stand alone or be incorporated with my beaded work.  The possibilities seem to be endless. I enjoy sharing this with others.   Besides retail stores and artisan craft shows, my work has been exhibited at galleries such as The Red wing Gallery in Tarrytown and The River Gallery in Irvington. I've enjoyed membership with The Rivertowns Arts Council and have participated in the Rivertowns Artists Studio Tour.
