As Marc Chagall once said, "I work in whatever medium likes me at the moment." I have worked in oil painting, ceramics, fused glass, and lately, the exciting new medium of Precious Metal Clay. Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is pulverized silver, an organic binder, and water, which can be formed and manipulated like ceramic clay. Once fired in a kiln the binders burn away and the silver particles fuse together. The resulting object is .999 FINE silver. I have been combining PMC with fused dichroic glass or ceramics to make one of a kind jewelry pieces. I have also been teaching introductory classes in PMC at different locations in Fort Wayne.
I was born into a family of artists giving me a lot of exposure to art from an early age. In High School my photography won awards and was displayed in New York. I received a BFA with High Honors from Indiana/Purdue University Fort Wayne. My senior year I won the John Matthew Stein Award, given to one outstanding senior each year for excellence in art and academic achievement. My emphasis was oil painting. Later I studied toward teacher certification at St. Frances College in Fort Wayne, IN. I have set up ceramic and glass fusing/ metals studios in my home. In 2002 I became certified by the PMC Guild, Rio Grande and Mitsubishi Materials to teach classes and workshops in Precious Metal Clay techniques. Several years ago I worked with kids at risk for gang violence through Arts United. I have also served on an artist panel for a local gallery. In 1996 I was chosen to designed and executed tiles for the Fort Wayne Bicentennial Gateway Markers that greet visitors entering Fort Wayne
