Ever feel like you were born too late?
Yeah, so do I.
Although I do enjoy things like high-speed internet, comfortable clothing, and the right to vote.
Arthritis in my fingers forced me to switch to writing jewelry tutorials. I love my fellow wire artists, and want to help you expand your skill set.
I’ve wept tears of joy over a great piece, and I’ve hurled half-finished work across the room in frustration – but I’ve never, ever, been bored with wire.
I never attended art school, but I earned my KITA (kicks in the ass) from the School Of Hard Knocks. I’ve been a hairstylist, nail technician, bookkeeper, grocery store cashier, bartender, bass player, and singer, but always an artist underneath all that.
I am such a history nerd, I once explained the Dred Scott decision to two of my friends. In a tavern. While watching Jeopardy.
When I’m not at my workbench, I work for a calendar publisher as a staff accountant / credit manager.
Born in Joliet, Illinois, I hightailed it for the Northwoods of Wisconsin in 2000, and have lived there ever since.
