    My Mom encouraged me in my artistic endeavors from a very young age. She bought me some of my first beads and taught me to string, and I've been doing it ever since. I'm also a graphic designer, and in my spare time, I like to write about food.

Hi, I'm Kathy, otherwise known as the Minx. I've been playing with beads since I was a little girl. My Mom and I would sit around the kitchen table with boxes of dusty old seed beads that had once been a glass door curtain, stringing them on dental floss to make necklaces and bracelets.

My artistic juices flowed in other directions in the 80s, and I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 1988. Shortly thereafter, however, I took a seed beading class there on a whim, and I became addicted. Working with tiny beads seems like it might be difficult or stressful, but I find it to be extremely relaxing. Because one must concentrate on the color arrangement and on picking up the beads with a needle, it's difficult to think about anything else. It's a great way to calm down, to spend an hour or four thinking of nothing, while something beautiful unfolds in front of me.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
