Biography: 
As a child I took delight and sometimes solace in drawing, painting and messing with clay. When I 'grew up' I became a Math teacher, needed a graduate class, took a tecnical Metal Design class and got HOOKED. My professional life kept me very occupied for 33 years. Then I retired? Took a lot more classes and got serious about metal crafting. And then my daughters discovered Art Clay and now we three are learning and teaching.
