About Her Art:
"Individualistic, Imaginative, and Identifiable are how I would describe my work. My art pieces are hand sketched, sculpted, finely detailed and finished to the highest metalsmithing standards. Quality is of the utmost importance to me along with design sensibility. I love what I do. It allows me to merge my two passions, Art and Nature, to create unique Jewellery Art pieces using traditional and non-traditional jewellery techniques."
