I blog, teach, write, learn, dream. Founded Indy Metalsmith, a guild for those who love metal and want to meet. Wrote “The Complete Idiots Guide to Making Metal Jewelry”, Alpha Books, for those who wish to bring their own dreams to life in metal. Pat President of the Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealers Association (IDADA) and past Vice President of IDADA:TURF art installation during the Super Bowl in Indy.
In another life, I worked as a Project Management Professional/Construction Manager. My husband and I live in Indianapolis near my downtown studio, where I keep an enormous collection of tools as pets.
My design approach is intuitive, based upon inspirations in nature, architecture, dreams, conversations, rust and grit. A gaze across my workbench. The ancient combined with the modern. The one-of-a-kind. These go in my gallery case or online shop.
Working with clients to bring their dreams and ideas to life is my joy and my business. Communication with my client sharpens ideas into drawings into jewelry or sculpture. Specializing in alternative engagement and wedding rings. Happy clients abound!
Small to mid-sized works in copper have forged a totally malleable and colorful part of my business. Dimensional tabletop-size sculpture, larger sculpture of copper or bronze for outdoors, and two-dimensional patina paintings on copper sheets mounted to wood are my current thrills.
