About Me & My Crafts

I've been crafting in all different medias for as long as I can remember. I use to cut out pumpkins and witches for Halloween out of construction paper & newspaper & leave them on the kitchen table for my mom when she got home from work.  My mom taught me how to sew at a very young age so off I went making my own dolls, sock monkey's, you name it. 

When I turned 11 my mom took me to a porcelain doll shop where they had classes on how to make the dolls. I begged her to let me sign up & after speaking to the woman at the counter she signed me right up!  That kicked off my love for porcelain & ceramics. Thank you mom!! You are the most amazing, patient woman in the world!

Years later I decided that I'd like to put my art to test & see if I could make a living out of it. So I went to make up school & immediately started working as an artist for fashion shows, TV shows; I did America's Next Top Model for 12 different episodes; & was fortunate enough to assist Joanna Schlip, Celebrity make up artist; on a catalog for DuWop Cosmetics.  Working with DuWop opened even more doors to some really high end designers like Lyold Klien, Antik Denim, Deborah Lindquist & Taverniti.  

Now, I'm learning all new techniques with paper.  Who knew you could do soo much & have soo much fun with paper!! I'm excited to see where this new journey will lead & I really hope you enjoy my crafts!!
