A performative arts background continues to influence her work. Sculptural forms are thoughtfully engineered for the body and are intended to contribute to a daily experience.

Her jewelry is represented in galleries and exhibitions nationally and internationally and has been exhibited in widely celebrated craft expositions. Her work is among the permanent collections of the Gregg Museum of Art at North Carolina State University, The Racine Art  Museum in Racine, Wisconsin, The Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC and The Enamel Arts Foundation in Los Angeles, CA. Publications include, 500 Paper Objects, Lark Crafts, Behind the Brooch, Schiffer Publishing, American Craft ,and Metalsmith Magazine.
