Some of you know me for my music or acting career, and may not realize my background in fine art. I have a faded hot glue gun scar on my left arm – a testament to my reckless childhood craftiness. In high school, I focused on painting, drawing, mixed media collage and assemblage and was accepted into Parsons School of Design in NYC. Conflicted about what I was going to do with my life, I decided to put off art college and pursue my other passion, acting. At age 17, I moved by myself from my hometown of Monroe, Louisiana to NYC. 55th and Broadway. Every day was a thrill as I worked my tail off as a personal trainer and a waitress. Because I missed visual arts, I enrolled in F.I.T. (Fashion Institute of Technology) in Accessory Design but only went for 2 weeks before acting auditions pulled me away and I dropped out.
In the years that followed, I fulfilled my dream of performing on Broadway and toured the U.S. and the world as an actor. In 2005 when I had my daughter, Rosalee, I reconnected with my love of art and began to metalsmith sterling silver jewelry.
The jewelry and gifts I create are more than just pretty objects. Each piece is hand stamped with meaning to the individual. I love working with metal in my East Nashville, Tennessee studio creating custom, meaningful, wearable, art. My work is handcrafted in the highest quality materials and put my heart into every piece I ship out.
