I am a mostly self-taught wire and cold forge metal jewelry artist. And have recently added traditional metalsmithing techniques to my body of work. I have studied under local artist, Stacy Perry, as well as, learning from books and video tutorials. Other jewelry artists and instructors that I have learned from include Sharilyn Miller and Lisa Niven Kelly, who are considered among the best wire jewelry artists. I also have had my jewelry in the Step by Step Wire jewelry magazine; Feb-Mar. 2010 issue and June-July 2010 issue.
