I'm a self-taught artist from the Deep South near Savannah Georgia and I currently reside in South Carolina. When I'm not working I'm reading. Or maybe gaming. I came by that late, but I do love to game. Whatever I'm doing I carry with me a love of the art of personal adornment, a fascination with its history and an anticipation of its future.
I fell in love with beads during a crisis. The beadbox was therapy and since then I've made this my full-time job and branched from strung pieces into beadweaving and wire-working. I'm ever intrigued by what adornment evokes in us and says about us.
Conformity and uniformity are overrated.
Less is less.
The individual and ornamental has inherent value.
