As a perpetual doodler creating tiles is a natural transition. I am fascinated with the ebb and flow movement created of line and shapes. The addition of color is the next level of enjoyment. I have a BA Degree in Art Education. Many years were spent working as an Art Director for a US Air Force Base community. Getting paid to play was amazing and the perfect job. However, due to budget cuts the program was closed and I moved on to work as one of the directors of a large military child and youth program. After 30 years of service I retired and now am able to concentrate on my passion of the arts and fine crafts. I am a handmade jewelry artisan specializing in wire wrapped one of a kind pieces.
