About the Artist
I am basically a collector and an artist. When I was 17 years old I walked across the threshold of my first antique store and I knew that my life was changed from that moment. I love treasure hunting for the old elements I use in my jewelry making. I was born with the itch to make art and I knew how to paint before I could speak in sentences. I have never had any idea of what to do with my life other than be an artist. It has been who I was and how I acted since I was aware of being myself. The theatrical look I create, that's just my taste. I like fancy, opulent and old world; and, I want to make things that fit into that scheme. I want to live in, revel in it, adorn myself and others, but most of all, I want to create it.
