Doing my art full time. I expect to be selling my stuff full time in a year.

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

Use the clay that bests suits you and what you are making.

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

NWPCG

I use to love Cernit because I could get it through mail order cheaply. But am a firm Premo user now.

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

Most of my training is in drawing and painting. I have dabbled in sculpting and find it the most fun. Poly clay enables me to combine all three. My family is very supportive and my daughters are very interested in their own clay projects. My husband has been my best fan and worst critic.
