With achild’s imagination and the influence of nightmarish fears from living in the center of the dense northern woods, the environment was perfect inspiration for her vision to create a collection of otherworldly characters dressed in a Victorian aesthetic.
It is the passion for creating and thirst for culture that eventually landed her on the west coast and in art school. The Academy of Art University in San Francisco had a strong program in traditional sculpture in the figure and mold making that she turned into an independent study to learn porcelain early on.
She is classically trained in figurative arts, knowledgeable in anatomy, mold making, furniture and a long history in cosmetology, theater, events and an insatiable passion for learning keeps her current in traditional craft.
