Pencil and watercolor sketches have become a documentation of a few of the mineral specimens and fossils I have adored and collected over the years. The miniature bits of nature each hold their own beauty and secrets, some millions of years old. I was inspired by the Germany book 'Das Mineralreich' the published work of historian Joseph Edlem von Baumeister (1750-1819).
Minerals and gems inspire me and I incorporate them into wearable pieces of artistic jewelry. In some cases I use lapidary techniques to re-shape the stones.
