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.


Please follow the Flickr link above to see my latest creations.

Feel free to visit my blog spot Shiny Fuzzy Things to get a peek into the world of Shiny Fuzzy Things I come across. Custom hair ribbons can always be requested through my Etsy Shop. I will have a list of my latest shows below on this landing page, but be sure to check out my shutouts for other fun creators and events.

S.T.E.A.M. is an Educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math as access points for guiding students inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. S.T.E.A.M. has been brought to the forefront of schools curriculum in recent years. S.T.E.A.M. is a movement championed by Rhode Island School of Design & widely adopted by educational institutions, corporations and individuals. (The STEAM Festival)
The S.T.E.A.M. festival is here to make learning fun with Steampunk themed workshops, games, vendors and entertainment; united through the power of imagination and shaped with the aesthetic of Time Travelers, Tinkerers and Steampunks. It’s the worlds of Jules Verne and Leonardo Da Vinci played out exclusively at old train towns and museums across the western United States. Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. A perfect fit for the existing train museums that feature Steam engines and other extinct technology.
