The one constant in my work is color. Whether I am holding a pen and loading it with paint for a lettering project, or browsing through my bead stash, I am looking for color; looking for the way different colors play off of each other, and how the character of the surface changes in each combination.
Calligraphy allows me to work with some of the most wonderful words and meditate on them, play with them, and try to express their meaning through form and color.
Beadwork and fiber art provide a more intuitive way to work with form and color, looking solely for the joy that creating a beautiful ornament can bring.
I hope you'll find something of interest here. Most of my work is by commission, and I would be happy to discuss making your vision a reality! Again, thanks for visiting!
