I create hand-embossed jewelry in copper, brass, and pewter.

Meet Mimi: designer...teacher

I have been creating art since I first discovered colored pencils and pan watercolors in elementary school. Since then, I’ve explored a variety of art mediums through formal instruction in high school and at the university level, as well as through an abundance of trial and error inspired by YouTube videos, online workshops, local art groups, and Pinterest. My present fine art work is focused on mixed media experimentation, combining the traditional art materials of canvas, paint, and ink with my photography, hand-printed papers, and calligraphy. As a photographer, I am inspired by the beauty of the natural world, and as a life-long reader, by the written word expressed in poetry and literature. Both find their way into my art, as I experiment with layers of acrylic paints, inks, and watercolors interspersed with my photography, hand-printed papers, and calligraphy. My jewelry designs reflect my love of the natural world and my fondness for mixed media work. My recent designs feature hand-embossed pewter, copper, and brass combined with charms, natural semi-precious stones, and the sparkle of Swarovski crystals. Many of my designs can be customized with birthstone crystals, making them ideal gifts for special occasions. My own favorite pieces to wear are the ones that remind me of special events in my from friends...vacation memories from galleries and museums...repurposed beads and charms from my college years. The pieces I create for Thoroughly Modern Mimi are a reflection of those treasured times and what started out as simple origami earrings has morphed into semi-precious natural gemstones, Swarovski crystals, and hand-embossed metals.
