Patchwork People Story

In the year 2000, a coworker gave me some pretty materials that she had purchased and said "you are crafty, see if you can make something out of this"! I had no idea how to use it but decided that since I worked with children and parents, I would make a design of a child! Little did I know that the design would mold itself into a full fledged business of twenty+ years! I create the art to wear jewelry from a metallic colored acrylic material that I cut shapes from, then heat the pieces together to form a design. My specialty has been the people pins that I custom make to represent families, friends, children, etc. It is so fun to hear the stories of the people that they represent..and I am honored to take place in the families traditions, the awards used at conferences, the memories of family members passed on. While doing art shows, I get many requests for custom designs of all sorts, challenging me to constantly create something new. Some of the most popular designs include whimsical animals and colorful abstract designs. Earrings, pendants, and now ID badge holders (fun at work!) complete my collection while I constantly look for inspiration from nature, photography and other artwork.

    I love the individual expression that art gives life! I currently live in Ohio in a home surrounded by thousands of trees. I started making people pins in 2000, and love that they have gone all over the world, bringing a little joy with them!
