"I love the transforming power of play. I give my materials breathing room to surprise me so that my finished pieces have a life and opinion of their own. What appears to be a faceted stone is in reality layered Italian glass. A transparent glass-like petal is really made of recycled plastic happily                          

juxtaposed with silver and semi-precious stones. In both my florals and my jewelry I embrace movement: charms jump through hoops of glass; flower petals uncoil in a playful dance in mid-air. Ultimately, my work is about the tension between struggle and beauty, the hope on that horizon. It is that joy I wish to pass on to you."
