RoseGate studio is now based in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, USA. I have been sewing and doing beadwork since the 80’s, metalsmithing since the 90’s, and now I work at whatever I am inspired to do on any given day. I enjoy combining things like stone and steel, stone and leather, beads and silver, and fibers and anything that inspires me. I have a BFA in Sculpture from Ohio State University, and studied blacksmithing, fibers, glass, ceramics, and non-ferrous metals at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Since 2015 I have been a managing member of Art on Oak located in Hood River, Oregon where over 30 artists sell their work in a carefully curated gallery.
