I make aluminum jewelry and wearable art by cold-connecting anodized aluminum rings and die-cut components. I love creating sculptural, unexpected pieces that are lightweight and easy to wear.
I am a Mixed Media Artist and Photographer. The major theme of my artwork is architecture, but I also like to create nature/landscape-themed artwork from time to time depending on the surroundings that I am in at the moment. Most of the time, my photography and mixed media artwork come together in my collages. My mini-collages (Chicago, International, and Galapagos Island animals themed), photographs (Galapagos Islands themed), coloring books (Chicago and Galapagos Islands animals themed), and prints of my Mixed Media artwork (Chicago themed) will be at the RAW Show again this year!
Using the ancient medium of encaustics, I combine beeswax with antique botanical prints, celestial maps and iconic holy cards. Through their interplay, I evoke the timeless presence of the Great Mother archetype, symbolized by the divine feminine in her many cultural forms. All the beautiful icons that I use have rich and deep ancient history. My artwork explores relationships between; science & spirituality, women & nature and the feminine & healing.
