fine craft, mixed media
I am inspired by nature, particularly repetitive patterns known as fractals. I was formerly trained as a jeweler, but most of my most interesting work has come from collaboration with my husband, a commercial coppersmith.
A BFA from Maine College of Art provided me with solid design training, but equally important has been my work experience in the fields of education, management and various trades. Over the years I worked for many fine art jewelers, taught workshops at the Worcester Center for Crafts, managed the Museum School at the Fuller Museum, Brockton, MA, and worked with people with disabilities. Since 2005, I have been dedicated solely to creating fine art/craft pieces out of my business “Patina Studio”.
I currently reside in Tiverton, RI, where I find great inspiration in the geometry of nature. My artwork can be seen in many galleries as well as corporate and private collections throughout the United States. I have a showroom located at Tiverton 4 Corners, (8 Neck Rd) where I exhibit my work along with other local art.
