Our History

   I have long been fascinated with all things beautiful and
sensuous, and for the past 21 years I've relished in sharing
the treasures I've discovered with my visitors.

It all began when I opened Studio Nouveau, a brick and mortar
store in May, 2000 on the stunning Sonoma County coast in
California, where I sold a line of lamps I'd designed and sculpted.
These Art Nouveau inspired light sculptures featured
tree root bases, copper stems, and copper mesh shades.
Locally made and European jewelry, sensuous clothing,
Italian brass candelabra and other reproductions,
massive Edison filament lights, Italian and Armenian delicacies,
fine chocolates, Moroccan spices, and exquisite journals followed.
Finding and bringing this special space to fellow travelers and
locals for 20 years was one of the great joys of my life.

At the end of 2020, I closed that retail shop and relocated to the
Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I now sell mostly through
this website, ObjectsOfBeauty.com, and weekly pop-up shops in
Check it out, this place is magical and
set up for visitors!

The wares I bring to Objects of Beauty change as I change.
When I became passionate about horsemanship, and then my beloved
Mortana, a Morgan mare who came into my life in 2014, my eye turned to
 an earthier vibe.  I began wearing more turquoise, southwestern bags and accessories,
as well as carrying a knife and sipping from copper vessels.
Since I represent and sell what I love, these inspirations are what you'll find here.

 I’m always searching for unique items to add to these collections,
so stay tuned as I reveal new treasures...and never hesitate to call me!
