Certified Precious Metal Clay Artist 2008
I have a strong interest in staying diverse in the arts and feel it balances out the creativity for crossing over techniques into other mediums. Art is part of my everyday life and I love sharing and teaching others. People have a hard time grasping that I cross mediums instead of focusing on one, well both of my parents were very talented artists and art instructors and I was told to stay diverse in the arts. I am so thankful! I go in streaks of each of the three mediums, sometimes taking years off in between.
The majority of my Metal Clay jewelry work is custom orders and for galleries, I work with customer from a little idea they have and then I do drawings of what their idea can be turned into. This is my favorite part of art, helping the idea become a piece of art for the customer.
