Your Body is My Canvas.....
The Human Body is one of the most intriguing canvases an artist can work with, because it is in constant movement and is subject to the laws of gravity.
The Challenge for an Artist like me is to combine my personal vision and individual statement with the right construction techniques to support both form and function.
A Good piece of jewelry is conceived from the inside out, and it is the invisible infrastructure that the Jeweler creates that allows the Artist free reign of whimsy.
I start with a Polymer Clay sculpture, always keeping in mind that it must be in harmony with the rest of the components of the finished piece, and with the body itself.
Polymer Clay is a marvelous medium that comes in a variety of colors.
The Art of Polymer clay is to blend those colors as one would paint a picture, but the craft is in knowing how to manipulate the clay to form that picture. .
This type of Jewelry sends a subliminal message to the observer that this woman is daring, bold, yet very playful!
My Pieces are very elegant, but they don't take themselves too seriously.
They make a statement without being aloof.
They say "Yes, this woman is someone to reckon with, artistically, but she is approachable and fun"!
My Ultimate Design Goal is for the woman who wears my work to know herself......
as Art in Motion.
