Graduating from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in Art History, I have always been fascinated with the visual and literary arts. Each piece is inspired by Art Deco and Japanese textiles, vintage art slides, classic literature, sheet music and hymnals. We all remember a favorite book or church hymnal from growing up, and my collection hopefully gives another value on something that is more meaningful than just wearing another piece of jewelry for the day. My technique includes finding my inspiration in my paper and materials. I first started with textile prints and then expanded into vintage classic books, old church hymnals, and vintage maps.
