Hi there! Thanks for visiting my site.
I love art – I breathe and live art in all what I do: decorating my home, presenting food on plates, painting city or landscapes and making jewelry. I like to combine my painting and jewelry making with another love I have: people and cultures. I got the inspiration for my jewelry from ethnic tribes that I discovered travelling around the world. I especially like the somewhat rough surfaces and edges that characterize tribal jewelry. This resulted in a set of designer necklaces and jewelry collections each focused on a specific theme where I apply these tribal jewelry characteristics. My first collection is 'The Jocale' designer necklaces and jewelry collection and is inspired by small dancing and moving figures (I call them acrobats) that can also be seen in some of my multi-media paintings. Given the early success, I soon expanded my jewelry line with The 'Manhattan' designer necklace collection that is inspired by the skyline of Manhattan, New York, which is close to my home and my heart. The 'Il Passagio' necklace collection found its roots during my frequent travels to Italy. Passagio means wandering on promenades. This is a favorite of couples and families during the evening, and mine too! My 'Le Chateau' designer necklace collection represents the grandeur of castles and mansions I visited during my travel throughout Europe, and France in particular. Lastly, the 'La Bohemienne' Collection on the other hand is inspired by adventure and freedom with a hint of Asia (where I met my husband).
All my art is made in the USA.
I was born and raised in Belgium, where I earned a pedagogical degree in art. I received further art education in Antwerp (Belgium), California and New Jersey, USA. I now live with my husband and four children close to New York, USA.
