A bit about myself...I was introduced to the exciting world of metal clay in 2007 when I decided, on a whim, to take a class at the community college with my mother. I have taken classes in lampworking and beading before but I wanted something new to add to my designs. My education has continued throughout the years with Lyle Rayfield, a Senior Instructor for Art Clay and Rio Rewards PMC Certified Artisan, in Tucson, Arizona. In 2007, I became a Level One Certified Instructor for Art Clay and in 2014 I received my Senior Certification. I also obtained my Level III certification with PMC Connection in 2014. I am fortunate to live in Tucson, Arizona and we regularly have awesome trainers that come to town every February with the Gem and Mineral Show.
Since 1995, I have worked in the field of law enforcement. After many years in a very stressful and dangerous job I have decided to make major changes in my life and do what I love.
