Being creative has become a way of life.  I wouldn’t feel like ‘me‘ if I wasn’t doing something creative every day.

My mother encouraged my art work at an early age.  I loved to draw, paint, sketch.  Horses were my favorite subjects then… now my focus has turned to mountains and other nature-scapes.

As an adult, I have explored a number of different mediums; paints, glass, and metal.

Lexi Erickson introduced me to metalworking in 2008.  Since then I have continued my studies with, Harold O’Connor, Andrea Kennington, D’Ette Delforge, and others.  I am fascinated working with all types of metal and love exploring its properties. It’s fun to just pick up a book on a new metalworking technique and run with it.

I am a former board member of the Colorado Metalsmithing Association.

Working with metal has opened unlimited opportunities for learning, exploring, and creating. It is my firm belief that life is filled with continual learning experiences and that must be embraced.  I strive to do this in all areas of my existence.

I am blessed to share my life with my best friend and husband, Dan. He is my soul mate. We share our home with three, yes three, adorable basset hounds. Life with bassets is never dull and they are the most delightful companions and entertainers. We are members of the Basset Hound Club of America and find bassets to be a truly remarkable breed. There’s nothing like a hound!

Aspiring to be more as an artist and a person every day.
