I was born and raised in East Germany and was 12 years old when the "Wall" fell. Currently, I reside in New Mexico with my hubby and black lab "Roxy."
Art has always been my hobby and an escape from a stressful day job in health care. The vacuous desert of New Mexico inspired my creativity to fill the voids with huge colorful paintings of flowers, plants, mountains, landscapes, and extraterrestrial planets. Having run out of space on our walls, I began selling my pieces at a local farmer's market. Always in search of new ideas and mediums, I took a few courses in silversmithing and became passionate about creating custom handmade jewelry.
