I am a naturalist, geologist, and a self-taught artist and metalsmith. I have been writing, drawing, and walking in nature all of my life. I have a M.S. in Geology and three years of undergraduate education in Botany (including a Smithsonian lichenology internship). My art, photos, and poetry have appeared in several publications and national juried shows, but since 2000, my website has been my only outlet for exhibition and sales. I have been blacksmithing since 1994, specializing in iron jewelry, bells, and primitive blades. I do a small amount of lapidary work, especially handmade stone beads. I have ten cats (seven of them black) and a garden filled with native desert plants.
Thank you for visiting! THIS BLOG is where I post photos and descriptions of new art, work in progress, and the occasional how-to lesson or nature photo. Work for sale (if any) may be viewed and purchased on my WEBSITE. Due to health issues and other time constraints, I do not accept commissions for custom work.
