I grew up in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains; running wild with my brothers and climbing trees, making daisy-chains and reading books.
Blending a wide array of techniques studied through apprenticeships work/study trades and Folk Art Schools, I combine rare earth elements into beautiful adornment for bohemian, free-spirited women.
Using mainly recycled and locally sourced materials; I blend contemporary and age-old designs in an effort to create pieces that tell a story as unique as the women who wear them, and use lightly of the resources we are gifted with.
My workspace is filled with beautiful antique tools, empty coffee mugs, an eclectic collection of vinyl LP's, art, plants, and occasionally my little calico cat - Firefly.
Most of all, my studio is built on stories. Let's add yours!
