I’ve been making art since I could hold a pencil (walls were my first canvas, much to my mother’s dismay). I love painting and making things, and I love the adventure of learning about new methods and materials.
I’ve been selling my art to people since I was a teenager.
Back then, my workshop was in my bedroom, and I used an old sink cabinet left over from when my parents remodeled our kitchen. I made doll house furniture, Christmas ornaments, stained glass windows and painted landscapes on Mateus bottles. (Don’t judge me, LOL.)
When my son was little I turned to sewing, and produced muslin bunnies, Christmas stockings and potpourri pillows, as well as assembling and painting model kits for people at local comic shops.
And then I discovered Fire.
Armed with my torch, I began making jewelry! I started with unique mineral cabochons and then tried setting broken china and glass. Another form of Fire came with my kiln a few years ago, and now I am playing with fused glass and enameling.
Who knows what I’ll be making next? *grins*
