About

I am a polymer clay artist in Buda, Texas, just over the county line from Austin. I began making beaded jewelry in high school, and studied painting briefly at the University of Michigan. While my life's dream was always to be an artist, I got my engineering degree and worked in the computer field for 20 years. After taking a Photoshop class in a web design program, I gradually turned back to my artistic side. I re-entered the art world doing graphic design, logos, and painting designs on clothing and on furniture; but when I returned to my jewelry roots, I wanted to embellish my beaded creations with my own beads and pendants. I discovered polymer clay, and I found my passion . I'm inspired by ability of polymer clay to create intricate patterns and masquerade as anything from metal to semi-precious stones. I initially began with jewelry and decorative household objects. But currently, I am focusing on mixed media wall pieces featuring iconic figures such as Frida Kahlo and The Green Man; and goddesses representing the supreme feminine.
