About the Artist

Creating since 1985

I have been an artist since 2nd grade. My teacher saw I was always sketching and had me do a bird poster that went up on the glass window to the school office. Thought I’d be an art teacher, but have been a soft sculpture artist for over 35 years. My work has won 2 TOBY awards, 1 IDEX award and 2 IDTS awards. And it appears in the Susan Quinlan Doll & Teddy Bear Museum and Library.

"Getting to make bears and other animals, folk art pins is such a joy. I'm grateful to all my collectors for enjoying this journey with me!"
