I've been working with metalclay for over 12 years. My work has been included in three of the five PMC Annuals published by the PMC Guild and various other publications as well, including "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. Update: I was published in the most recent PMC Guild Annual, October 2011.
I'm also a mixed media artist and have recently been published in 1000 Artist Journal Pages, 2008 and Collaborative Art Journals, 2009.
I taught Silver Clay classes yearly 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.

Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

The belt buckle has long been a functional object. It has only been since the early 20th century that it has truly become a fashion statement. This exhibition features a collection of contemporary, hand crafted belt buckles that really examine what this amazing accessory can do beyond its solely functional past. See More
