I’m proud that my work has received wide recognition in just a few years. Below are some of the awards I have won, as well as press and museum exhibits of my gems.
A number of my gems are in museum collections or private collections that are occasionally exhibited in museums. I have had my gemstones exhibited in the Tellus Museum in Georgia, the Perot Museum in Texas and the University of Arizona Museum. The Georgia amethyst featured in the image below is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
My gems and some of my own photographs have been featured in several publications to date including the GIA’s “Gems & Gemology,” Gemworld International’s “GemGuide” and the Fourth Edition of Antoinette Matlin’s Colored Gemstones Buying Guide to name just a few.
