I am a self-taught painter, sculptor, metalsmith and enamelist. I take my inspiration from nature and from architectural and contemporary design elements. My design aesthetic mixes clean simple lines with rustic touches and the occasional splash of whimsy. I enjoy experimenting with a combination of various mediums to create an eclectic representation of how I see the world. You could say my work is driven by the exploration of new and unfamiliar territories.
I pride myself on creating beautiful, long lasting items that you will cherish for a lifetime. For me, it is more important to take my time developing a unique design than creating a repeatable series. Each work of art is a labor of love, wrought by my own hand. No two pieces are ever alike, and that's the way I like it.
Since the mid 80's, I've wanted to make jewelry. I skirted my away around it, sewing, weaving and painting. It wasn't until 2008 that My Brown Wren was born. The time was right, and I was ready to take the leap into the world of metalsmithing and enamels. From there, came a more serious exploration of mixed media art. The My Brown Wren brand is eclectic, unique unto itself.
Style & Quality
Clean, simple lines, combined with elements of industrial style, are the quintessential foundation of the My Brown Wren brand. Never too shiny or pretty, my jewelry stands on its own, an elegant statement of the creative spirit. My mixed media art employs a minimalist style and a touch of whimsy, with a universal appeal. Each piece is quality made - something you will cherish for a lifetime.
Each piece of My Brown Wren jewelry and works of art are one-of-a-kind. I may repeat a style, but each piece is handmade by me in my studio - no two pieces are exactly alike. I have no worker bees fulfilling orders. It could never be that simple. The item you receive has been envisioned by me and wrought by my own hand, quality made with love from me to you!
