I have been designing and crafting since childhood - my creativity blossomed at age 12 with the gift of my first painting set. I'm a creative design professional, specializing in mixed media, three-dimensional crafts and home décor. As a Designer Member of CHA, my work has been published in numerous craft magazines and books, as well as being featured online and at trade shows. I enjoy bringing a unique twist to my designs by using traditonal materials in unconventional ways. I am currently on several design teams and teach at my local scrapbook store.
