Hi! I hope you enjoy looking at the pieces of jewellery and art on these pages! This art journey is always a pleasant surprise!
The paintings have been a part of me since I was 7 or 8. I dove into colouring books, drawing, and wanted any toy that allowed me to make things and had a lot of different parts.
In my teens my favourite class was art and English. English because we could "read books!" Art because I could stand at my desk for a change. Move a bit!
White paint on black. Acryllic. 12" square. (SOLD).
I ended up at Art College, and then I became a graphic designer, who then specialized in designing books. I have been designing books for over two decades now. (See bookstopress.com) And I love it. I just needed to use my hands differently and then came along the jewellery!
The Jewellery (Jewelry)
One night after Christmas I had this urge to make something 3D with my hands. My partner had bought some beads and had made some bracelets for family and he had plenty left over. This particular evening I asked if I could use the beads. Like in a dream, I began envisioning finished pieces of jewellery!
And then I had to take courses in
silver-smithing and follow that new and exciting experience. Right now I find myself thinking of Wings. (See the Gallery/Fine Art page.)
Dilithium Crystals (?)
My apologies to Trekkies more serious
than I. I couldn't help but think of Scotty
and his dilithium crystals and outer space when I created these. I felt I was traveling with them!
Sea glass, coloured glass, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver wire, glass bead. (SOLD).
