I am a mostly self-taught artist. At first, my inspiration came from learning the craft itself. Now, in addition to learning a new exciting twist on a technique, Inspiration comes from COLOR, pattern, and texture in just about anything from nature to textiles!

I enjoy many different types of arts. I play the piano, draw, knit, crochet, play with wire, metal stamp & emboss, and love to dance. But I keep coming back to beads because they're so versatile! So many things can be made from beads!! I've been beading for over 20 years (but more seriously in the last 10 years)! I hope to keep learning, and growing, and I hope that my finished works will reflect this in the artful integration of many different techniques and mediums.
