I believe artists must be sacrificed to their art. Like bees, they must put their lives into the sting they give. Like the bee, through my work as a photographer; jewelry designer; painter, ceramic artist and mixed-media artist for almost fifteen years, I’ve come to know well the joy and sacrifice of creating art and distributing it for sale and as gifts.

My experience working behind the scenes has helped me blossom as an artist. I feel that sharing one’s gift is a vital and rewarding part of growing as an artist and I believe very much in artists passing on their skills to others as well.
