Hello Everyone,

art57square.jpg

I am a digital and mixed media artist and teacher. I have been working with Polymer Clay since 2000. I love the versatility of this medium. Polymer clay can be used to create jewelry, wall art, home decor, and of course sculptures. I am drawn to primitive forms, ancient civilizations, and I want my art to reflect that. I created this series of abstract primitive bird sculptures with this in mind. I am pleased to be able to teach these techniques to you!
