I live in the Washington DC metro area and I am an Arts and Crafts Enthusiast. I have never met an art medium I did not like. I enjoy creating with inks, paper, acrylic paint, sprays, metallic waxes, texture mediums, clay, and metal. I like sculpting, mixed media, paper crafts, assemblage, altered art, making jewelry. My style ranges from modern, Shabby to Steampunk/Industrial.

I have been making some sort of creative something since I was kid. As it happens to some us, as adults we tend to temporarily abandon our creative endeavors because of this little thing called life. About seven years ago I decided to get back to being creative and have not looked back since.

I like to stay in the creative flow by taking classes online and in person from art institutions and artists; also by designing for several arts and craft manufacturers and participating in gallery art exhibits and of course doing something creative every day, even if for a few minutes.
