About Me

I grew up near Detroit, MI, attended Michigan State University as an undergraduate and Penn State for graduate studies. I have a background in Plant Biology but always made time for art specifically pyrography (wood-burning art), chip carving, and abstract design.

I love what I do and especially enjoy meeting and getting to know visitors and fellow artists at shows and events!

Outside of work, you will often find me gravel biking, rock climbing with my hubby, motorcycling on a sunny central PA day, or on our front porch with a hoppy IPA in hand! 

This piece about my wooden jewelry, process, and background was graciously made by the talented producers at our local PBS station, WPSU!
