Art ...has always been an expression of my
emotions… Creating art through various mediums has been my gateway to
discovery, a part of who I am. I have always loved creating, learning about an
object’s essence and finding out how it is structured. Even the act of buying
art supplies gave me a feeling of a new beginning and a renewal of my life’s
Over the years I have owned and operated several craft and art-related
businesses. Along the way, from sorting findings, to selling supplies for
making jewelry, to designing and creating my own jewelry, I continued to
develop my craft. As it turns out, everything I did helped lead me to my
passion, teaching classes.
When I discovered Precious Metal Clay, it sparked my imagination and
changed my entire focus. I found out that this medium has few limitations.
It is easy to work with, and quick to transform from an inspiring idea to a
completed design. I took classes from all my favorite artists, and I
eventually became a PMC Senior Teacher with PMC Connection, Inc. I now teach Art Clay Silver and I am a Senior Teacher. I do classes in both kinds of clay and certify in Art Clay Silver.
Along my path, I’ve taught at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in
Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Purdue University-PMC World Conference, and at the
Collage Gallery and Studio, Waco, Texas. I currently teach at The Craft Guild
of Dallas, Art on the Veranda and at my home studio in Dallas, Texas.
I love the situation of seeing a student create something
that she didn’t know she could do. Every day I learn something new, and hope to share
