|Location||Courtenay, BC, Canada|
|Introduction||I love to create work that expands the concept of jewellery as simple adornment to one that encompasses self-expression and purpose. My vision is to create unique jewellery that encourages people’s individuality and connection to truth, nature and beauty. Both traditional and contemporary ideas of design guide my innovation and creative fire. All things worn can have meaning. We need meaning to fulfill life and create balance, both within, and between, the individual, the community, and the natural world. Jewellery, when created and worn with intention has the ability to empower and connect us with our deeper selves. Originally from the islands of BC’s West Coast, I have now returned to my roots in the Comox Valley after some time in the city. I received my diploma in Jewellery Art and Design in 2000 and have since studied at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, as well as with local art teachers of different mediums.|
|Interests||Beautiful things - making them, wearing them, walking amongst them. growing and cooking scrumptious food, gardening, writing, reading, hiking, camping, ...and maybe most of all - creativity... the way it teaches me to listen to the language of my soul.|
