*** MILESTONES ***

I am thrilled to announce that I have just sold my 500th item & have over 3000 Etsy "Hearts" marking me as a favorite! Thank you, Etsy buyers & watchers, for visiting my shop and for your encouragement to continue to make art and fulfill a lifelong dream!
Ok, I admit it ... I love to MOODLE!
Although not yet an official dictionary entry, to "MOODLE" is to do what makes you the happiest, when you want to do it. As a retired teacher of 34 years, I am happily doing all the art I had no time to do during my career.
My favorite materials include: enamel, wire, curiously unique found objects, insects, copper, brass, plaster, resin, fabric, FauxBone, beads, buttons, solder, paper, wire, and rubber toys.
My favorite artists are D J Pettitt, Richard Salley, Stephanie Lee, Susan Lenart-Kazmer, Jane Wynn, Deryn Mentock, Tory Brokenshire,& Linda & Opie Obrien.
While I still teach online (in my pajamas without starting my car!), I am able to happily pursue forms of art that have appealed to me for many years. Some of my other interests include quilting, purse-making, mixed & altered media, traveling to visit my three sons & grandchildren (who are scattered all over the world), community & art guild work, & of course, making art!

I am delighted to be a recent inductee into the juried artist group of the Yellow Breeches Chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. I am also a member of the Enamelist Society and of the following Etsy teams: Cabinet of Curiosities, Art Jewelry Collective and Mixed Media Art!
