Meet the Designer-Artist
Where do you live? I moved from Minnesota to Arizona and have been inspired by the beauty of Arizona.
What inspires you as a designer-artist? The sunsets and the deserts are amazing. I am so lucky to have found a wonderful polymer clay guild. The members are so talented and so giving.
What medium do you work with mostly? Working with clay is great therapy. I enjoy letting the clay lead me.
Where and how do you sell your jewelry? I have sold some pieces but most are gifts.
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? Viking Ship
What inspired this design? My husband is Norwegian, I had been watching the Viking series and was fascinated with the longboats. I had a teapot and looking at it I thought, "this could be a longboat." The research on the construction of the boat was amazing. The wood carvings are unbelievable.
