Artist Statement: As a break from doing a lot of work on a computer, I started doing macrame and designing jewelry to counterbalance technology with hand-crafts. I love losing track of time concentrating on what I’m doing and getting lost in it.
My greatest influence is things from the past (colors, trends, packaging.) I upcycle materials for my jewelry using old discarded guitar strings and beads from broken vintage jewlery usually found at auctions or estate sales. I buy my macrame cord new but include driftwood, drum sticks, croquet mallets, and copper tubes in my pieces. I also make a variety of smaller items (like key fobs and ornaments) from the scraps.
Bio: I have been a full-time employed graphic designer for over 20 years. Most of those years has been spent designing CDs and LPs for musicians and DVDs for filmmakers.
