I am a creative spirit and self-taught polymer clay and mixed-media artist. My work is inspired by nature, fantasy, mythology and different cultures and spiritual paths from around the world. I am also a tarot enthusiast, voracious reader, avid crocheter, wanna-be herb gardener and dabble in many other creative endeavors.
I was formally trained in floral design when I was in my twenties, and specialized in wedding work and silk floral design for many years. Nowadays, typical craftiness for me includes: thread crochet, rubber stamping, digital photography and glass etching. I dabble in calligraphy, candlemaking, sewing, drawing Celtic knot work, collage and creative journaling as well.
Currently, the main focus of my art work is in creating unique polymer clay pieces. I love to incorporate lots of rich colors and interesting textures in my designs. I also like to bring elements of my other interests, like Celtic knot work and rubber stamping, into my polymer creations.
