Get to Know

Hello and welcome to my studio. I've always been interesting in creating things. I use do a lot of cross stitch and then I started adding beads to some of that. After a major move from San Diego to Vickburg I was busy raising a child and my free time became very limited. I did get the opportunity to catch a lot of Carol Duval and started to dabble in stamping, paper crafts, clay and beads. In 2008 a friend and I decided to take the Lisa Pavelka Polymer Clay Cruise and it was the real beginning to my love affair with Polymer. I started taking classes when I could line them up with vacation plans. Then we started our own guild and my goal of bringing in International artists to Mississippi came true! Our guild was on the map. I was lucky enough to enjoy some beading classes and started a yearly retreat for that with a few friends. Life is a journey. I'm loving my journey and hope you'll come along for part of the ride~
