Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Petaluma, California
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
HappyDayArt! Studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I've worked with metalclay for 15 years. Over the last 7 years I spent a lot of time traveling around the country taking classes from many of the metalsmith artists, enamelists, and mixed media artists that I have admired over the years. It's been quite a learning experience and I have had and continue to have the best time making things in my studio.

My metal clay work has been included in three of the five PMC Annuals published by the PMC Guild, including the final edition in 2011, and various other publications as well, in "Metal Clay Beads" written by Barbara Becker Simon, Lark Books, 2009 and Sherri Haab's revised and expanded edition of "The Art of Metal Clay", Watson-Guptill, 2010. My metal clay pendant necklace called "My Heart's Golden Secret" won 3rd place in Misubishi's "Tales of the Heart" Competition in February of 2013. Two of my metal clay boxes are in Ganoksin's online exhibit called "Holding Place: A Repository of Containers and Vessels by Metalsmiths Around the World". Link to the exhibit is here: http://www.ganoksin.com/exhibition/v/HoldingPlace2013/.

I'm also a mixed media artist and have been published in 1000 Artist Journal Pages, 2008 and Collaborative Art Journals, 2009.

I taught Silver Clay classes for three years at a big mixed media art retreat called Artfest, in Port Townsend, Washington. I also teach private classes and am always on the lookout for classes I would like to take to add to my skills and keep my designs interesting for me.

"Sometimes it just depends on who I'm talking to but interesting to note, I never label myself "Jeweler". That would get people to ask me to make their idea and I usually don't enjoy doing that. I really like "Maker"…"

Hi Catherine,  You have some remarkable pieces of jewellery, which medium are you working in silver or mixed metals.

I am just getting back into my work having had nearly three years of very little due to circumstances, but I feeling a lot more settled here with my son in Queensland.  I have quite a lot of ideas running through my head which I now want make into reality.
