Since early childhood, the love of all forms of art – drawing, painting, pottery, jewelry creation, design, captured my interest and I immediately fell in love.

In an effort to move toward my goal of selling unique handcrafted creations, I obtained a BA Degree in Art with a Minor in Education from Westfield State University. My curriculum included classes in Basic Design, Color Theory, Drawing and many other forms of art expression which would help in my design process. Having a passion for art I also have a great passion for gemstones and gemstone healing. In 2006, I began realizing my dream when I started selling my creations to the public through in-house parties, craft fairs, and on my online website. My Business Snail Trail Creations was born, where jewelry and gemstone healing are intertwined. My hope is to be able to continue throughout my life earning a living using my creative talents.

February 1st 2014, I had the opportunity to take over a local small business called Groundings. The Shop was a Healing center with Spiritually inspiring gifts, and essentials. I decided to add local artisan Products and Art into the mix. The combination of Art and providing a healing environment for others is when my dreams became reality.

Thank you for taking the time to read and explore the website. Stop in and say hello, and may our paths cross many times thereafter.
