Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some are to be chewed and digested.”          ~Francis Bacon, Essays (1625)

A sketchbook is the creative starting point for many artists to tell stories and connect with people through art. As a mixed-media artist, a beginning sketch is a springboard to several of my artistic endeavors. In addition to jewelry, my interest and skills also focus on fashion illustration, design and book art.
