Artist Statement



I am a North Seattle photographer and jewelry designer. My botanical imagery are of items lovingly found on my morning walks with my two chihuahuas. I bring these wonderful works home to my studio to be photographed. I am especially fond of the beginning and the end of the life cycle of nature. When I am finished with them, I return them to the earth to regenerate the soil.

My photographs are printed on 100% rag matte paper

For the jewelry, I print my original photographs on a poly sheet, heat seal them and coat them with a jewelry grade resin. I hand drill the holes based on the piece I am making. They are lightweight, waterproof and very durable. I use sterling silver for all my findings and chain.
