Since childhood she has enjoyed working with her hands to create things and so , after graduating from Central High School in Manchester, NH, was thrilled to attend the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI.
After graduating from RISD in 1990 and receiving a BFA in Jewelry and Light Metals, she worked a couple of years for other designers. During that time she honed her metal skills, developed her unique jewelry line and started a business selling her designs around the US. Currently she has a studio at the Button Factory, in Portsmouth, NH.
She says that, "she is most inspired by nature’s perfect design. It is one of her favorite challenges...to see a beautiful flower or branch, etc. and to figure out how to recreate it in silver and gold."
