I'm a native Floridian and local resident here in South Florida. My work is inspired by the sights, sounds and wildlife here in S. FL and my motivation to create comes from my beautiful family. I love to create in many mediums including recycled cotton/wood fiber paper, gemstone beaded jewelry, hand carved lino prints on shirts and tote bags, hand painted magnets and more. My favorite thing to do is recycle materials and upcycle items. My paper art is sometimes the most satisfying to create because it encompasses recycling, upcycling and sometimes playing with color.
