Our Staff


I have always been interested in the arts with ceramics and fiber being my favorites. I am self-taught but have taken many classes to continue my education. I am certified with two paint companies. I also raise alpacas, which keeps me very busy.


I have been at The Crafty Shack for many years. I love teaching people all of the different techniques I know. Dry brushing and kids canvas are my two favorite styles to teach.


I am originally from Columbus, Ohio.  I am a graduate from the Western Michigan University with a BFA in Ceramics.  I have been involved with art since I can remember, but clay is my passion, and it is a medium I hope I can continue working with for years to come.


I am the owner of The Crafty Shack.  It was a life long dream on mine to make art and creativity my full time job.   I love introducing art and creativity to ages 1 to 100!  I am a self taught artist and have taken many classes to further my abilities.  I am a certified teacher with 2 painting companies.  My favorite medium is underglazed. 


I have worked with the Crafty Shack family for almost 5 years.  My specialties include helping with kids camps and birthday parties.  My favorite painting techniques are using glaze and dry brushing with acrylics.


I was hired at the Crafty Shack in the summer of 2018.  I am currently enorlled in the Art Therapy Program at Carlow University.  My favorite painting technique in dry brushing.


Working at the Crafty Shack has taken my hobby to the next level.  I love teaching others different painting techniques like antiquing and dry brushing, but what I love most is leading childrens birthday patries.


Art has always interested and inspired me since a young age.  I love being able to help people create art.  My favorite part about my job is working with the kids.
