About

I am crazy enough to love my job as an art teacher to some of the most creative and expressive beings who are living with the challenge of being adolescents. But I find my sanity in my ability to express my own self through designs of my whimsy. I thought I'd have to give up my sanity I mean art when I gave birth to my daughter, but to my surprise I found that the more creative I am the more satisfied I am as a mother. Her infectious giggles and eyes that smile are also incredibly inspiring.

About my Egg Ornaments
As a ceramic major in college who entered the real world void of a studio space I returned to my roots and began to play with polymer clay again. My designs begin with a process of hollowing and cleaning pheasant eggs. Then I cover the eggs with polymer clay to create my EGGSPRESSIONS. This also protects the egg with a sturdy covering.

About my Egg Ornaments
As a ceramic major in college who entered the real world void of a studio space I returned to my roots and began to play with polymer clay again. My designs begin with a process of hollowing and cleaning pheasant eggs. Then I cover the eggs with polymer clay to create my EGGSPRESSIONS. This also protects the egg with a sturdy covering. I learned my swirl egg design from an artist demonstration on Crafters Coast to Coast and found myself captured in the tranquility of designing with excruciating details and extraordinary elements. These Eggspressions are great as Christmas ornaments, decorations for a beach room, nursery or anywhere else you fancy a whimsical decoration.

Gardens
My family and I just moved into my grandfather's house. It is full of fond memories of his unique ways of up-cycling items long before it was cool to do. It is also surrounded by acres of woods. A dream come true to raise my girls in such a beautiful setting. The gardens are an extension of my imagination taking flight with all of the inspiration around me.
