"I can’t remember when I didn’t make things. I’ve done arts and crafts all my life and at some point I went back to school thinking I would like to hone in and be good at one thing. I had a great time but it didn’t work. I majored in ceramics, and received a B.A., and loved it. I’ve sewn, crocheted, macramed, potted, painted, pasteled, scherenschnitted, tole painted, collaged and now I also make jewelry. I’m still a dabbler and a dabbler I will always be. My favorite jobs while my husband was in the military service were to work in craft shops and student centers where I set up programs, solicited teachers, taught classes and created displays - perfect jobs for me"!
