Artwalk 2018 Location: A.C. Legg Lofts, 2319 1st Avenue North
As a multi-faceted artist, I have been learning about and creating art for most of my life – from American Indian beadwork as a child, to painting, pen & ink drawing, stained glass, photography and, of course, jewelry. My jewelry is created with a focus on color and details. Bracelets and necklaces are created using a Japanese form of weaving called Kumihimo. Using a loom with eight warp threads and strategically placed glass seed beads, I create multiple designs to emphasize the beauty of the selected color palette. In addition to my Kumihimo creations, I also weave copper wire, gemstone and glass beads into visually enticing pendants. Using a rainbow of colors and a variety of patterns, a kaleidoscope of beautiful, wearable art is accomplished.
