…Born in Los Angeles, California, 1951. I was a child of curiosity with an investigative and engineering mind. My days were filled with wonder and discovery in both nature and technology. My ongoing design inspirations are derived from historical origins such as Art History, Archeology, The Sea and Music. Mother Nature has filled my artists’ palette with natural elements of precious metals, gemstones and ancient artifacts that constantly re-connect me to the thousands of years that have passed before. Therein lies the spirit of my driving force.
