Who inspires you?
The polymer clay community has some amazing artists who create pieces that delight the eye. Some of them are in PCAGOE. It is so wonderful to visit their shops and see their newest work! Everyone inspires me at one time or other.
What inspires you?
This is easy! All of creation!!! Especially flowers and plants.
Where do you create?
I turned our spare bedroom into my studio when our youngest daughter got married a few years ago. My wonderful husband bought me an incredible work bench that has shelves, electricity and even a magnifying light attached. And the coolest hydraulic chair that goes up and down with the touch of the lever. Everything I need at an arm’s length.
How long have you been working with polymer clay?
I worked with salt dough clay in the 70’s and early 80’s. I got so discouraged when people would tell me that the Christmas ornaments they bought from me had become a lump of goo from being stored in their basement. I quit working with it completely and went on to many other mediums to quench my desire to create. I started reading about polymer clay many years before I ever found it in our area. I think I bought my first package around 12 years ago or so…..and have been pretty much addicted ever since.
