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!
