My metals career began in 1983; in third grade when I made Cyndi Lauper bracelets from old colorful telephone wire for my punk rocker Halloween costume. Eventually, I got my AA degree from ECC, and soon after my BFA in Metals and Jewelry at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
After graduating in 2000, I worked as a full-time bench jeweler for 9 years. Wanting more.... I received a scholarship to attend graduate school and completed my MFA in metalsmithing at Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville (SIUE). I now have a lovely husband and 6-year-old son named Oliver, who loves to help me hammer in my studio.
Currently, I teach metalsmithing at Maryville University and Craft Alliance in St. Louis, Missouri.
