We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Carnelian and Mexican Crazy Lace Agate Pendent

I found this Agate at the Gem Show this year in Orlando Florida and loved the colors in it.
If you look closely there's a little druzy in the center of it. Carnelian is becoming the new Onyx
in my list of favs. I've always liked the contrast of Black Onyx and Sterling. Carnelian, if its
a good quality stone, has a stunning deep dark orange color that looks great with silver. It all
came together one day in the studio when I was playing around with cabs and sketching. Here it
is. I especially like when my sketch book plans turn out so well.

Well, I've been playing with different stones as of late and found these beautiful little 6mm green
amethyst stones on Etsy from this shop: lilpengeeGems.
  Heidi has very good products and send your purchase quickly, I highly recommend her shop.

Silver Silver Silver

I have been setting stones lately but I still love playing with textures and applications with just my sterling. As of late, I've been reticulating silver and using it to overlap with. My love of funkiness creeps in when I'm in a playful mood in the studio so squiggles and spirals, stars and circles find their way to the surfaces as well. Here's what I mean:

Trenton Falls ARTS FESTIVAL www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I-ahJOKPBQ

Here is some of the work that I'll be exhibiting in the Gallery Barn this year.
I decided to show my "Encaustic" Paintings. Not only does the subject matter
of nature work for the show, but I would like to take this opportunity to introduce
this technique to those who would like to know about it.

Trenton Falls 2013 Arts Festival

Well, Fall is back again and with it comes the second annual local Arts Festival
which represents the wonderful local talents and home grown, home made products
from our beautiful upstate NYS area.
  Bruce and I will be participating again and I think we have found our one Crafts/Arts
Festival a year to call home. Since we have our own shop and representation in various
galleries, we don't travel with our work, but this venue is just too good to pass up and
I think I feel confident in saying for both of us that other than the Barnfest, which pulls
from many parts of our country, this little gem venue represents our local artisans,
artists, musicians, bakers, cooks, farms, etc.
