Welcome to my Blog

If you are visiting this site for the first time, I invite you to look back through the older posts. Though this is not a commerce site, I am more than happy to hear from you about interest you may have in buying or commissioning a piece, or for any other inquiry.

Come See Me and my Work

I will be exhibiting at the Peoria Art Guild Fine Art Fair, September 26 & 27, 2009 in Peoria, Illinois, booth 6. Stop by and say hello! If you mention this post, I have a gift for you.

New Pieces: Bird Series

I seem to be putting birds in everything I make lately. I think they represent freedom, the ability to be natural, and living in the here and now. The two bracelet images are actually the two sides of a reversible bracelet, called 25 Birds. The vertical piece is a pin/pendant called Snow Birds, of copper, titanium and silver. Both these pieces are already sold, though I could make something similar to order. The last piece is called Taking Flight. It is a pin/pendant, silver, titanium and opal, on a copper display environment that can stand or hang. The titanium work in it represents a new direction I hope to push much further, working in a more painterly style.
