Hello and welcome to my Web Site

My artistic career started at age five making shaped mud pies, baking them in the sun and painting them green, because they were pistachio pies! This was in our wooded home just north of Mexico City in the early 1950's.


​The influence of color in Mexican art is paramount. Vivid indigenous Indian textile hues; the painter Orozco's earth and jewel tone paintings; architect Luis Barragan's clean lines and sharp colors with water feature accents; the tropical colors of Acapulco on the Pacific, and much more, all made a deep impression which I believe shows in my "Artistry".


After twenty one years in New York City as an Advertising Executive, I moved to the East End of Long Island. There, I eventually returned to school for two years to become a professional Massage Therapist and Healing Touch Practitioner for the next decade. This physical and energetic work was my passion. But, eventually my visual and creative senses needed something more.

So, on weekends, I began studying seed bead weaving, wool hooking, clay work, basketweaving and stain glass art among others. Over the years I had lots of fun meeting great teachers while I searched for the "Artistry" that sparked my personal creativity. By the time it was time to stop my "Career" lives, I had found that the most calming and satisfying craft was weaving with small glass beads.


Inspired in 2013 to move to Western North Carolina, I landed in Weaverville, just north of Asheville... .one of the most creative, beautiful and inspiring mountain areas I have known.


Now I focus on three creative endeavors that makes

my heart sing:

Seed Bead Weaving Jewelry​

Quilting - Wool Hooking &

​Beekeeping

  ...with its attendant pollinator gardening requirement....Both posing a challenge for the embattled Honey Bees and for anyone

new to gardening in Carolina Clay!
