Creating has always been my passion and my outlet for expression. As a child, I loved going through my mother’s jewelry box, admiring the lovely things she had. I took classes in everything I could find. Summer school was not something I dreaded because I could always find interesting art instruction. I was fortunate to be introduced to wax casting as a teenager, and that’s when my passion really ignited.
Now, I enjoy marrying different styles and techniques to create unique one-of-a-kind pieces.
eleMental is all about self-expression. I love finding objects and materials - things we don’t always expect to ”go together” - and combining them in ways that are unusual or quirky. I’m always on the lookout for rusty washers, nuts, bolts, etc... Old tins with interesting patterns printed on them... Many of my designs include freshwater pearls (because a girl should always wear pearls). Old and new; rusty and shiny. Industrial and natural. It’s all fair game!
Yellow House Studio was inspired by my desire to share my passion beyond just creating and selling my own pieces. I moved to New Bern, NC fIve years ago, but I think my soul must have been here before. I fell in love with the people, with the sailing culture, and with the vibe. There‘s so much wonderful art being created and appreciated here that I wanted to be a bigger part of the scene. So I started offering small-group classes on evenings and weekends to share a little piece of this art I love so much.
