My art is a creative collaboration of precious, late night memories of my mom and me searching through her jewelry box and the soul-filled conversations that would follow about faith and family. I would hold the tiny treasures in my hand and she would share the beautiful stores of each piece: the coveted sapphire ring from her Confirmation, glow in the dark rosaries from childhood, the wedding band from my Dad, a very cool plastic shamrock charm and the sterling rosaries her Dad brought back from Ireland.

As we dug deeper and deeper into the jewelry box, the conversations deepened as well...God, values, traditions, sacrifice and Jesus. It was an honored and sacred time for mother and daughter. Art sometimes comes from deep and hidden places within ourselves and just waits to flourish. My art is constantly flourishing and looks to honor that precious time.
