The artist in me set up shop in 3rd grade when there was a line of friends waiting for my personalized Snoopy drawings (yup-it the the 70's!). I was creating, it was cool and I was hooked!! Since then my artistic training has been a mix of taking classes and self-taught explorations. It's been a great journey from crafting beaded necklaces in grade school (still have the seed beads & the necklaces!) to painting, photography, ceramics, mosaics and making cards (my mom has kept every one!) to come full circle back to beads and jewelry design.
I love the creative process and find terrific inspriation in everyday life. Shuttling two boys, ages 12 & 10 about, finding pockets of time to share with a very busy husband and long beach walks with our Golden Retriever. All combine to keep me active, outdoors, and continually exposed to nature's palette: Fertile ground for ideas!!
