Layers of life, relationships, color, and texture and line weave in and out of my enamels, as they do in my watercolors and digital photography.  Enameling has fascinated me since the 1970’s.  My first enamel jewels were wrapped with yarn bezels to emulate a relative’s work who was a textile artist and enamelist. When not working, I would take classes – first with Emily Moser, then Joann Tanzer at SDSU, and numerous workshops.  I was an active member of Enamel Guild West, then the San Diego Enamel Guild.  I belong to the Enamelist Society and MASSC.

For many years I have collaborated with other women enamelists as “The Flying Flux”.  Our narrative pieces have been exhibited in a number of the Enamel Society’s Juried Exhibitons.  This year our work will be exhibited in Eugene, Oregon,  in the Enamel Society’s  17th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition.  My work has also been in the NCEG 9th Juried Enamel Exhibition at the Oakland Museum, and one of my plates was selected to be in the Lark book “500 Enameled Objects”.
