~I am a longtime member of Clayville California, a wonderful polymer clay
guild in the Sacramento area whose members inspire me with their artistry
and generous friendship.  I helped to organize and run the artist gallery at
the I
nternational Polymer Clay Association's Synergy Conferences in
Baltimore in 2008 and 2010.  Over the years I have been fortunate to
participate in workshops with
Julie Picarello, Kathleen Dustin, Sarah
Shriver, Seth Savarick, Klew, Desiree McCrorey, Maggie Maggio, and
Robert Dancik. All of these fine artists helped me to make the transition
from medicine to art and to grow creatively in leaps and bounds (thank
you!).

~I love to combine a variety of materials - new and reclaimed, vintage and
contemporary - to create art that expresses my eclectic sense of style.  
Each piece usually requires many steps to achieve the desired result.  In
addition to this website I sell my work through
Etsy, art events, and
galleries.
~My interest in color, texture, form, and design has drawn
me to many art mediums throughout my life - textiles,
jewelry, photography, gardening, polymer clay, metals,
and papier mache.  After years of pursuing my art
part-time, I decided to give up my day job in health care
and follow my creative passions on a full-time basis.
