Stacey Johnson's Profile

About

I have always liked to be busy and enjoyed making things. It began with summer arts and crafts, keychains, potholders and then ceramic class. My fifth grade teacher got me interested in batik and my friend's mom taught me to sew. Then it was cross stich, embroidery and batik silk scarves. As an adult, I became obsesive about beads, which led me to take my first class in metal work in 1993.

Well its been metals ever since. I can't stop, I continue to be challenged with new techniques by taking workshops when ever I get a chance. I'd like to thank some of those I have taken from: Heidi Gerstacker, Mary Rogers, Andy Cooperman, Cynthia Eid, Pat Flynn, Val Link, Sherry Fotopoulos, Marjorie Simon, Susan Lenart Kasmer, Jessica Papke and Hadar Jacobson So I've opened a shop so I have an excuse to keep creating.
