About the Artist

Since I was a little girl making mud pies decorated with tulip petals I have loved being creative. In 1997 I discovered polymer clay by viewing the Carol Duval Show. My son's elementary school art class introduced me to the more pliable , Sculpey polymer clay. My enthusiasm lead me to become one of the founding members of the Pittsburgh Polymer Clay Guild. Through the guild I have been fortunate to study with many famous polymer artists.

During the past 25 years my exploration of creating polymer art has evolved from jewelry and home decor items. Painting with watercolor was my first artistic background and over the past 7 years I have been excited to dovetail painting with polymer clay.

The polymer paintings I create attempt to offer surprise, inspiration, reflection, and questioning to the viewer.  The pigmented clay offers boundless possibilities to entice viewers to touch, look closely and be surprised by the medium.
