I was trained as a teacher, but art has always been a part of my life. I feel fortunate to have found an art form, enameling, and also making mixed media jewelry that brings excitement into my life each and every day. My work is always changing, always a surprise! Having been seduced, empowered, enriched, & invigorated by metals & glass, I happily dedicate myself to creating and teaching others the joys of enameling! My work has been featured in 500 Art Necklaces, Steampunk Magazine, Belle Armoire Jewelry, Cloth Paper Scissors, and Green Craft Magazines. When I’m not teaching workshops or hosting other instructors at Charmed I’m Sure Studio in south-central PA, I am tending to two Etsy shops – Enamel Warehouse – http://enamelwarehouse.etsy.com, and Charmed I’m Sure Studio – http://charmdimsur.etsy.com.
