It took many years of trial and error to develop the right combinations of techniques and methods to achieve her signature style.In particularly with utilizing weaving and layering techniques to build highly intricate designs. She has been teaching what she has learned for the last 7 years and delights in finding new ways to challenge her students both in their workmanship and skills as well as how they perceive wire. In addition to teaching she has a book out “Fine Art Wire Weaving”, a Craftsy video “Wire Weaving Bracelets: Basics and Beyond”, as well as multiple articles in Step by Step Wire magazine. In 2014 her Thistle design won the Best in Show in the Bead and Button’s Bead Dreams contest.
She lives in Spokane Washington with her Husband and 5 children. When she is not creating she spends her time with her family enjoying life.
