I consider myself a flamework/lampwork artist and jewelry designer. My creative inspirations are color and design. The natural environment provides me many ideas for colors but I also enjoy the mixture of colors in pleasing palettes, for example, blues, mauves, and lavender. Sometimes I like to create using bright colors—so you never know what I will be doing next! I do enjoy the whimsical so sometimes that influences my glass beadmaking for both color choices and design.
