Industry Arts
Occupation craftsperson.metalsmith.maker
Location Bowling Green, OH
Introduction Besides jewelry making... I have many other creative interests! I have enjoyed community theater, singing, and dancing since my younger days. I have been knitting and sewing for as long as I have been making jewelry and in more recent years I've begun to really enjoy working with Illustrator and Rhino for laser cutting and 3D printing. I've also begun to work with Illustrator in a design capacity more frequently. The self-portrait on the left was done in Illustrator and is comprised solely of triangles. It was a fun challenge and I learned a lot! I am the oldest of four siblings and married my high school sweetheart in the summer of 2015. I'm looking forward to the journey ahead of me. It's sure to be filled with lots of art making, cooking, music, and family.

I'm a slow starter in the morning...
