I have been creative since a child and dabbled in many crafty pursuits, including quilting and lampwork glass, but was always drawn to complex textural and sculptural pieces in whatever medium I tried. It was a thrill to discover polymer clay as the perfect means with which to create sculptures that have the sense of fantasy and enchantment I adore.
Having one of my fairy garden sculptures published on the cover of Polymer Café magazine and a year-long fairy garden tutorial series in same encouraged me to continue creating the work I love and pass along the techniques to others.
Whether I teach on my blog, YouTube channel, in print, video or in person, it's my hope that students will come away enriched and inspired. If I've done that, I consider myself successful.
