Bio

I was raised on Cape Cod, MA by artistic parents – my mother, a painter and step-father, a cabinet-maker.  I grew up drawing, sketching, painting, sculpting, pretty much anything I could get my hands on.  I’ve always been “crafty” and enjoy turning every day things into things of beauty and/or interest.  My earliest claim to fame was being featured in an art show in 7th grade for a mosaic.  Today that mosaic hangs in my bathroom. I currently live and work just outside Wilmington, North Carolina with my filmmaker husband and our two furry children, John Adams (the dog) and Ziggy (the black cat).

I attended Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, VA, majoring in English.  During my senior year I was lucky enough to work on the college paper working the Arts and Entertainment beat.  It was great exposure to local artists and musicians. After college I moved to Atlanta, GA and worked on the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.  It was a fantastic opportunity and had the privilege of meeting so many interesting people.

When I was younger I wanted to be a writer and was published a few times throughout my 20’s.  I still very much enjoy writing and blogging is a great way for me to express myself through words.  I still dabble in poetry but not as much as I would like.

I can also be found on Etsy at http://blackcatsupplyshop.etsy.com where I sell hand aged brass stampings and findings as well as beads and other findings.

  • Hey there!

    I came across your site and think your necklaces are great! They are so urban and fun. Have you considered doing any advertising for your pieces? I have a website exclusive to cool moms and I think they would love your shop. It would be a great way to get noticed by tons of moms and with every ad I also write a blog about the pieces you like best so you can get more exposure and build your clientele.

    If you are interested definitely let me know! I can even send you a copy of my media kit with more info on prices if you like (I made the website and media kit all my own!). In the meantime I am going to keep checking out your site!

    Talk to you soon!
