Creating and teaching are at the core of just about everything that I do. I find inspiration everywhere and enjoy the camaraderie and community that is built when people of like minds and spirits gather together
As an artist, I am constantly trying new media and finding new directions for exploration. I currently specialize in metal clay, fused glass, alcohol ink painting and silk dyeing.
As a teacher, I thrive on awakening the creative spark within people of all ages and backgrounds. From in depth workshops to creative nights out with wine and cheese, I provide a variety of opportunities for creative exploration.
My work has been featured in publications including The Crafts Report (now known as Handmade Business), Art Jewelry Magazine, and Easy Metal Clay.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by the people I love, doing the things I love, and sharing that love with others.
As a Spiritual Being, I believe we are all here to make a positive impact on the planet and human consciousness. I strive daily to be that positive influence and to empower others to do the same.
I met the actor Joe Pantoliano at a Retreat. He purchased two of my pieces for Himself! A very nice man, he has excellent taste!!!
Making a mess and having fun dyeing one of a kind silk scarves.
Scarf dyeing and many of my other classes are suitable for all ages. This proud dad is helping his daughter get a scarf ready for dyeing.
