I am a belly dancer, a writer, a traveler, a certified life coach, and a jewelry artist. I love the culture of the Silk Road lands, from China, Mongolia, and India, through Central Asia, and on to Turkey and North Africa. I’ve watched Uzbek women weave traditional carpets, tying knot after knot of silk. I’ve danced with my Turkish friends in their homes to music blaring from their version of MTV. I’ve been captivated by painted tiles I’ve seen in mosques. The intricate swirls and paisleys of a bride’s henna-painted hands awaken my imagination.
Here at Magic Carpet Dance Arts, in Salida, Colorado, I create jewelry that reflects my love of belly dance, the Silk Road cultures and iconic and mystical symbols. Check out the Gallery page for lots of my past work. A new shopping page is coming soon.
Also at Magic Carpet Dance Arts, I teach tribal style belly dance. If you live anywhere nearby, check the belly dance page for start dates of new sessions.
May all that I create and do inspire YOU to dance and live with grace and beauty.
