Discipline: Jewelry, Metalworks
My mom has always been my biggest supporter. In 2004 she sparked my creative juices and I started making gifts for my friends and family. Before long they wanted to buy my pieces to give as gifts, so in the summer of 2006 I acquired my vendor’s license and applied for my first show in Cleveland, across the street from the West Side Market. I was thrilled when I was accepted and even more thrilled when I made my first sale. In 2007 I took my first glass class and have been designing glass jewelry and gifts ever since.
I continue to experiment with new techniques that give me the creative spark which motivates me to create pieces with that “wow” factor for which all artists dream!
