Biography:

I was born in Ohio, in 1948. My father was an Air Force pilot. During high school, after being fortunate enough to live in Ethiopia, Alaska, and other fun places, we settled in Sacramento, California. As a family, we spent most weekends and vacations skiing, camping, fishing, and exploring. Horses have been a large part of my life. During high school and college I earned money for my horse by making and selling jewelry. In 1970, I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, with a degree in Anthropology. Shortly after meeting and marrying my husband, Phil, in 1974, I opened a custom framing and gift shop. I ran the store until we moved to Arizona in 2002. Phil and I enjoyed flying, skiing and scuba diving when ever we got the chance. I never planned to become a metal artist, it came about in a rather round about way. Years ago, Phil and I had bought some old tractor seats that I wanted to make into bar stools. Every time we moved Phil asked “Are we moving those ******* tractor seats again?”. We dragged them around for 20 years or so until we moved to Arizona and built a house in Paulden. I signed up for a welding sculpture class at Yavapai College and was hooked. My first project was a 6′ Saguaro cactus made of horseshoes from my own horses. I finally made the bar stools and Phil is still amazed. When ever possible I make my work kinetic. I love to combine steel and stained glass to add color to the work. Most of my work is based on my love for the beauty of nature, color and movement. We moved to Boquete over 4 years ago and love it.
