Artist Statement:
 
Color has always been a well of joy and energy for me and I have found that painting with pastel is a direct approach that is fulfilling my desire to create and work with color.  I very much paint with my fingers as I like to blend my pastels.  I find inspiration in beautiful landscapes or through reflecting on my inner thoughts and my dreams which are vivid and present. 

Creating a piece of jewelry often starts from an inspiring colored stone, weather it is inventing one of a kind piece of jewelry with either a hidden side or a movable part or a little world of its own or creating custom wedding rings and personalized pieces inspired by my customers.  I get a feel for discovering what would fit the personality and style of the wearer and have made many unique pieces for the last 30 years in my studio in Mount Vernon.  I am a native of the French part of Switzerland and graduated from L’Ecole d’art appliqué of La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland as a professional goldsmith in 1979.  I have lived in Mount Vernon, WA since 1985.
