First Experience With Clay:  Reading books at the library, I began to incorporate polymer clay into my artist repetoire. I also have experience with drawing and general crafting, especially beadwork.
Past Teaching Experiences:  I worked at Ben Franklin Crafts in the late 90s. I have always drawn and worked in multi-media.

Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"Take the leap, share your gifts. I am particularly attracted to the Japanese notion of sensei, a teacher and fellow student in the craft. I am willing to teach students of all ages in order to refine my craft and solidify my theory."
