I grew up in Hemet, California, on a Thoroughbred horse ranch. I then lived in Hawaii for twenty years before moving to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

In addition to running my e-commerce business, I am an accomplished jewelry and textile artist. My work has been featured in many books and magazines, and I have been featured in numerous art gallery shows and have exhibited in juried exhibitions around the world.

Having been fortunate enough to extensively travel the world, my time exploring the cultures, architecture and artwork in over 100 countries has given me an international perspective to design; borrowing inspiration from different cultures and continents and combining them in original and eclectic ways is a hallmark of my work.
