For reasons completely unknown to me, I am a mermaid freak. I am fascinated by everything Victorian and Gothic...the jewelry, clothing and decor, so dark and ornate. I also love Edwardian and Art Deco styles. Performing arts such as theatre and ballet also have a place in my heart. All these things are of great inspiration to me. I also love the old, broken, rusty and ignored, so incorporating such pieces in my mixed media works is my passion. I have been creating different types of art for a long time and have been lucky enough to work for some great folks (a few are listed below). I continue to do gallery shows and pop culture conventions such as Indy Pop Con and Wizard World Chicago with new shows on the horizon. 

• Live Nation's House of Blues venues

• New York Fashion Week

• Actress Dakota Fanning, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne and other celebrities

• The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (I presented my art work to members of the rock band The Clash)

• The rock band Southern Culture on the Skids (my SCOTS art jewelry is sold at their concerts)

• Chicago Red Bull Art Of Can Exhibit

• The Georgia O’Keeffe Visions of the Sublime Exhibit (at both The Boise Museum of Art and The Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis)

• The Eiteljorg Museum's Grand Reopening

• The Eiteljorg Museum’s Buckaroo Bash

• DVA Gallery Chicago Grand Opening and Tiki Exhibits
