Years Teaching Clay: 7
Years Working w/Clay: 11
Specialties: I have favorite techniques but I personally prefer working with translucent clays and the mokume gane technique. Oh, and metallic clays are a favourite also.
First Experience With Clay: 11 years ago I watched a fellow artist working with the medium and became enthralled by what it could do and how it could be used.
Past Teaching Experiences: I've travelled extensively around the world
because of polymer clay. I've learnt from many well known artists
and been hosted by wonderful people.
Publication Experience: Twice had work published in Polymer clay books.
In my own country I have had magazine articles published about myself and polymer clay.

Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:
"If you have a love for the medium all boundaries
that you may feel are there will simply
dissappear. My favourite part of teaching is the
look on students faces when they create something
that I have shown them how to do."
