My art is a mixture of vintage, reclaimed, metalwork, fibers, and upcycleness all rolled into one. I started out majoring in photography before finding myself in applied design at San Diego State. Although growing up as a 3rd generation jeweler is really what started me on my current creative path. After college the need to create hit me and I started making jewelry to stay sane. Then came my signature crochet snoody hat which soon needed embellishments. Latter got involved with the Escondido Renaissance Fair and started pirate and mermaid inspired hair ribbons.

Then I found Steampunk….

Or maybe I had always had Stempunk, just without a name. One of my fist loves was dissecting old watches on a bench next to my Dad at his shop. The fun of reusing vintage and working with many new techniques led me to hat pins, hair sticks, and eventually to a strange collection of creatures I call Bugs. Today you can find my work at conventions, vintage shows and local art shows.

Shows for 2018

Duel at Dusk will be back in 2018! Because everyone enjoyed the expanded so much in 2017, we're doing it again. Madame Askew will be back to lead us through uproarious rounds of tea duelling and sparkling compliment duelling repartee. Do you think you're a crack shot? Prove it with Nerf gun dueling led by none other than Bob Mogg, The Iron Tailor. And what would Duel at Dusk be without Olympic style foil fencing? Come marvel at the skill, agility, and athleticism of San Diego's finest foil fencers.

We're co-located with ConDor Con in 2018!
