I am originally from Louisiana. I came here as sort of a dare 18 years ago and never left. I have always been interested in the arts. Mostly I focus on sculpture. My specialty is wire sculpture, but I also love ceramics and mixed media as well. Because of my love of wire, jewelry was an easy transition for me. It’s very exciting to combine different pieces into something totally original. I love tearing apart old jewelry and combining them with new pieces to make something completely new. I am mostly inspired by nature and love to play around with all of the charms at Nina Designs and create combinations that hadn’t been thought of before.
