I have been blessed to learn, enjoy and teach art for most of my life. Each stage of my life creates a new spark and a new adventure; my art follows and mimics. I have an unquenchable thirst for art and all that surrounds it. Collaboration and sharing are imperative for me to grow, and I continue to create many wonderful relationships through art. Taking courses and classes have been my norm since I was young. I received my BA in visual and performing arts in 1996, continued on with masters work in jewelry and continue daily to learn and experiment. Currently, I am immersed in soldering, metal work and transforming children's magical artwork into life lasting keepsakes. I am also in the final stages of writing and illustrating a children's book as well as teaching exciting and fun painting workshops to groups of all sizes!
