~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 am also a member of PlacerArts and the
International Polymer Clay Association. I helped to organize and run the
artist gallery at the IPCA's Synergy Conferences in Baltimore in 2008 and
2010. Over the years I have been fortunate to participate in workshops
with 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
~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.
