Born in California, but I grew up on a dairy farm in Oklahoma. I recently graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a BFA degree with emphasis in metalsmithing and jewelry design. Very much inspired by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods in Art History, which shows in my jewelry work. I am recently married to the man of my dreams and we are the proud owners of two Boston Terriers and a calico kitty. Cooking and gardening are also two passions of mine, and am often found out in the garden with the dogs or cooking what we've grown in the kitchen.
