About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Polymer clay artist/teacher
Location San Diego, California, United States
Introduction I grew up in New England with parents who were both very artistic and creative. I have a terrific husband, John,who is a writer and one son Michael who is married to a beautiful gal named Rachel. I have four handsome grandsons: Alexander, Zachary, Jonathan and Oliver. They enjoy doing craft activities with me. I have an art studio in Spanish Village Art Center in beautiful Balboa Park in San Diego. It is located right next to the world famous San Diego zoo. It is an idyllic setting for an art studio. I teach classes in my studio and have visitors from all over the world come in to look at and buy my work. I share my studio with three other artists and we bounce ideas off of each other and sometimes collaborate on projects.
Interests My passion is creating art programs for kids. I run summer art camps where every day the kids get to work in a different medium. I call it an art sampler. I also love experimenting with new ways of using polymer clay. I like to be challenged.
Favorite Movies I love watching movies but usually forget their titles after I watch them!
Favorite Music I love all different kinds of music and usually have my CD player on in my studio.
Favorite Books War and Peace by Tolstoy
