Joined 13 years ago from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
I am a girl that got annoyed when my doctor called me middle aged and am still wondering exactly what I'm going to be when I grow up.
I wear pirate shoes and a polymer clay beaded lanyard when I go to yoga at the YMCA. I have Jack Johnson, Prince, Dianna Krall, and the Black Eyed Peas on my Ipod. I get a lump in my throat when I see a great piece of art or hear powerful music.
I am a good girl. My husband describes me as a "…square with slightly rounded corners." We've been married for over 20 years now and I would marry him all over again… though there were a couple of years when we worked just a little too hard.
I have two beautiful, unique and independent children who I am absolutely nuts about.
Somewhere along the way I figured out that I'm much better at being myself than trying to be someone else. And I try really hard to make sure my kids are true to who they are too.
I can do just about anything AND have done just about every type of job out there... but am very grateful that my life eventually brought me back to art… what I should have been doing all along.
For over ten years now, I have been working with… and have taught many different mediums including acrylic painting, children's art murals, painted glass, glass tile mosaics, punched tin, making handmade paper, scrapbooking, beaded jewelry… and I am absolutely crazy about polymer clay.
I am a no B.S. kind of gal and will tell it like it is. I like to simplify and break things down into easy-to-understand and follow, bite size pieces. I think that is one of the main reasons why my students like me so much.
I now think there are officially too many I's and me's in this bio and solemnly promise to make the rest of my content about YOU and YOUR creative journey! Happy beading!
