Biography

I grew up in Northern Illinois and today I call Colorado my home. The rugged beauty of the Rocky Mountains captured my heart over 20 years ago. My life is shared with my best friend, soul mate and husband Dan, who is a talented software engineer and photographer. We share our home with three delightful Basset Hounds, who are great companions and true comedians. Life is never dull.

Throughout my life I have studied a variety of mediums. My mother insisted that I learn how to sew and knit.  I have tried my hand at painting, created stained glass windows and fused glass works for our home. Once I discovered metalwork, I knew I had found my passion.

My education, a B.S. in Computer Science, lends itself to the problem solving I employ as I work with metal. I consider myself a geek by day, artist by night.

I have immense gratitude for receiving the gift to be an artist.
