As a Fine Artist and Jewelry Designer, I debuted my jewelry collection in 2002, where my pieces with their passionate color combinations became my trademark. My mainstay materials include leather, cord, pave` diamonds and colored gemstones, and I do not shy away from strong statement pieces.
Emerging from a dedication to the art of printmaking using chine-colle' and other found materials, my 15th anniversary collection includes Digital Collagraphs.
Each of my digital pieces begins with original photography and usually multiple images are used to form a piece. I love working with saturated color as well as starkly contrasting black and whites and very often do a study of the same piece in all its beautiful transformations.
The digital art experience provides an outlet to be unceasingly creative, continually working and reworking pieces with the click of a mouse. Every new layer or filter creates endless possibilities, tapping into the unlocked potential that exists and providing the feeling that there are no barriers.
Having grown up in New York City, I am fascinated by the “art” of urban landscapes and the statements that people feel compelled to share. The streets are a veritable library of messages.
Many of my pieces has a hidden “eye,” keeping watch over all who admire it. My hope is that my art will act as a talisman, sending messages of kindness and compassion for all humanity.
