current as of 2018
I received my BS from St. Louis University. It was not until after I graduated that my interest in metal became a focal point. I began enameling (adding glass to metal) classes as they would fit into my life. I have taken numerous workshops all over the US, from well known metalsmiths which include, Andy Cooperman, Noel Leicht, Dan Haga, Adam Foster, Nanz Aalund, Trish McAleer, Michael Parrett, Sarah Perkins and Jane Redman just to name a few.
My current focus is on getting my new studio in working order. So much to do and so little time! As far as my actual work goes...it is in constant review and evolving with each day.
