Tell us in your own words, how you discovered polymer clay and how long have you been using it?

I discovered it at a craft store Ben Franklins. Now I use Premo from Micheals. I have been using it for over 10 yrs.

Are there any special artists that you can attribute your interest to or that have inspired you?

N/A

What is your specialty?

My specialty is horses and also cats and dogs.

Can you tell us why you find polymer clay the expressive medium for you?

It is easy to handle, not too hard and not too soft, it doesn't dry, and you don't have to use a special oven for it.

Have you published any polymer clay books or do you have any in the works?

No

I know it is very difficult to express, but have you won any awards for your polymer clay work?

I won 1st place in a local show and at the fair.

What are your expectations for the future? Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?

I hope to teach people how to do what I do and maybe appear on a craft show.

Do you have any advice for the beginning polymer clay enthusiasts?

Do not give up - it gets easier as you do it more.

Are you a member of any Polymer Clay group,or any other craft organization?

Yes.

What brands of polymer clay do you prefer and why?

I use Premo because it doesn't break as easy as other kinds and kids can play with my sculptures.

Last and most important can you tell us all about you? Your family, your training?

I am 21 years old I've never had any classes on clay because no one else in my area does clay animals. I wish there was another person I could learn from.
