Even as a child, I had an obsession with paper and everything that could be done with it- lettering, painting, collage and even bookmaking. Although my degree is in Photog-raphy, my passion for paper arts lead me into a variety of different fields along the way including printing and design. In high school I began making journals from old books that I kept sketches, ideas, clippings, and my day to day adventures in which naturally led me into the altered arts- and three shelves of books! Along the way I picked up a few more “obsessions” including calligraphy, beading, and rubber stamping. All of these creative endeavors are evident in my current fusion of mixed media works com-bining paper arts with jewelry. I am a returning Educator for Prima Marketing and have recently joined Sandra Evertson as an Ambassador for the Relics & Artifacts line from Prima Marketing. I am also on the Design Team for Authentique Paper, “The ICE Prince” with the ICE Resin Creative Team, and the Lead Educator for Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko. I’m naturally curious about learning, whether that’s in my studio discovering new tech-niques and experimenting or trying out some crazy new recipe that I’ve found on Pin-terest. In the sunny months, you’ll more than likely find me outside either doing yard work or enjoying the view of Mt. Rainier from my deck, dreaming up my newest crea-tion!
