Born in Pennsylvania, now living in Arizona, by way of Florida, I have always loved creating art in some form or another. I begin with an idea(or the idea finds me), and I create as I go along, not really knowing what the end result will be. But first there is the adventure of hunting for items at estate sales, thrift stores, and even in dumpsters (trash is simply a failure of imagination). In the 1990's I made original art teddy bears and later soft dolls (I love fiber of any kind). Now I'm creating art mostly relating to fantasy and steampunk, whether it is in the form of jewelry, wall art, standing assemblage, bears, dolls, or of things yet to come. I especially love recycling found or unwanted objects into art.
