About

Living the creative life through studio work ...

Painting with Fire Studio was born from my love of teaching torch-fired enameling. The immersion process of torch-firing, developed by Joe Spencer, eliminates much of the tedious steps normally associated with enameling. There's no cleaning of the metal, enamel adhesive, separate counter-enameling measure.

F&W Media has released two of my books, the first of which was named Best Craft Book of 2011 at Amazon. Since I love teaching, you'll also find my classes on Craftsy, the largest online education site for the craft enthusiast. At our midtown St. Petersburg studio, we also offer workshops for the beginner as well as those looking for a several-day intensive learning experience.

Please visit us at 2428 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg the next time you're in town. Simply take a tour, view a short enameling demo, or enroll in one of our metalsmithing, enameling, or lost wax casting workshops!

I will be forever grateful to Joseph Spencer for introducing me to the immersion process of enameling. His process and my background has led to pioneering advances in enameled jewelry.
