About

From my extensive love of reptiles and creating art, this awesome career has blossomed. and flourished. My specialty is mixing colored polymer clay and creating realistic and functional pieces of art that can be worn as jewelry, hung from your rear-view mirror, admired from a shelf, and more! I am a snake keeper owning about 70 snakes. Nature is my passion, along with creating art, and I hope to share the awe and wonder I feel for nature with as many people as possible.

I live in Pennsylvania, USA with my amazing husband and our wonderful daughter. I have always had a deep love for all things from the natural world. I was raised to interact with the outside world as much as possible. As a child, I was obsessed with insects, fish, and birds.

I was raised to interact with the outside world as much as possible. As a child, I was obsessed with insects, fish, and birds. I believe that all forms of life are beautiful and my wish is to spread the appreciation for the beauty of some of the less commonly-loved creatures in our world. Reptiles, amphibians, insects, and arachnids are some of the most complex, diverse, and amazing creatures on our planet. It is my hope that each day, more people will be able to look at a spider or a snake and see so much more than something that merely frightens them.

Some other things I enjoy: field herping (the act of finding wild reptiles and photographing them), hiking/biking, fishing, growing plants, insect taxidermy, RPG, Sandbox, and MMO style video games, and of course introducing my brilliant daughter to all of these activities and all else that life has to offer. My taste in music varies wildly but I particularly enjoy techno and violin for when I am at work.
