I have been playing with wire since 2002. I am primarily self-taught, with a few workshops and master level classes thrown in here and there. My main focus is wire sculpting and hand woven chains, but I am constantly challenging myself to increase my skills and I have recently added metal forming and texturing to my many skills.
I have always been an artist at heart. Initially my artistic endeavors were expressed through music and drama, from the big stage to the worship experience in church.
But in 2002 I was introduced to the fine art of jewelry making by my dear mother-in-law.  Now, 14 years later, I have enjoyed much satisfaction and success in building a business from something that I love to do, and isn’t that what we all pray for? When I am not at the juried fine art fairs, you can find me in my home-based studio, enjoying my favorite worship music while I create beautiful jewelry using the gifts God has blessed me with.
