I am an artisan with a diverse range of interests. My years of experience have allowed me the time to explore and gain proficiency across a wide range of mediums. Happily, I continue to produce work in all the areas below, finding a freshness and sense of renewal as I move among them.
Salvaged Vintage Metal
Working with vintage salvaged metal I create assemblages reminiscent of flowers and foliage.
Holiday Wreaths, Garlands, Ornaments and Trees
Vintage holiday materials and fine contemporary materials are merged to create a new generation of holiday heirlooms.
Silk Wall Quilts
My first artistic pursuit. Fine hand quilted original designs in luxurious light reflecting silk. Custom quilts available – large sizes a specialty.
Salvaged Elements Jewelry
Necklaces crafted from vintage metal and wood architectural elements, accented with repurposed old beads.
My most recent interest begins with wool roving, much of it sourced from sheep and alpaca raised on local farms and processed in Lancaster County PA. Roving is used to make wreaths and needle felted for jewelry.
My work can be found at Cross Keys Wood Works, 34 N Queen St Lancaster PA, 17603. 717 509 5224.
