My Bio
I have just completed my BFA at the University of Arkansas in painting and sculpture. I have worked in the real word for many years and now plan to make a living as artist... With God's grace. I am married and have two children (teenagers)who think it's cool that there mom does all this crazy stuff. I am currently working with a sculpture (Hank Kaminsky) learning how to make metal jewlery (lost wax method). We are working in silver and bronze. He sells his jewlery localy in Arkansas but looking to branch out. I have been fortunat to work on some larger sculptural pieces with Hank as well. I have a studio at home and do about anything from there. Will be posting some photography and images of my jewlery soon. Love DevianART and I tell everyone about it. Thank you for checking out my small portion of DeviantART.
