"I grew up surrounded by art. My grandparents were both renowned painters and illustrators. My father was an incredibly prolific artist who had some very exciting experiences, and his work graces the walls of many museums and private collections. He was a beloved member of our local community and found joy painting the local landscapes and the people in town, but he also traveled extensively throughout his life, capturing scenes and characters from his adventures on canvas and paper. His studio, which was attached to our home high above the Palisades with fantastic views of the Hudson River and New York skyline, often overflowed with students and admirers, and held an ever-present aroma of oil paint and turpentine. As young girls in this vibrant atmosphere, my sisters and I dreamed of lives steeped in creativity and nature, and we have sought these elements throughout our separate paths.
I have lived with my father's paintings as trusted friends. I have spent lots of time studying the details of the canvases. and I have always wanted to turn this inspiration into some wonderful jewelry that I can share with others, 'wearable art' that can travel with us each day. I hope you enjoy having these small pieces of art as much as I enjoy creating them."
