About Garbage & Rainbows

Hey Friends!

Thank you so much for visiting my little shop.  


The world is enchanting and disgusting and wonderful & I love the dirty scraps of things that follow in the wake of humans and tell our stories without words.  My jewelry and art are inspired by lowly materials and subject matter, treated with love and respected with good craft.


I make everything here in my home and studio in Portland, Oregon.


To view and/or purchase my work in person, go to

Background

I studied art and metal-smithing at Bowling Green State University and Oregon College of Art & Craft, where I earned my BFA, and spent the next 10 years struggling to find value in myself and art, working in customer service in the non-profit sector, as a metal casting technician, and as a deck hand on a boat in the Columbia Gorge.
