I grew up in St. Louis, MO, am married, raising children and working for Ford Motor Co. The experience of working at Ford gave me quite a range of diversity. Which eventually ended up in using my hands. I had my first experience with Carving wood after moving to Springfield, MO in 2004 with my husband Ray and my 2 Collies. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to expand my horizons and started to carve and scrimshaw Ivory. I then discovered the Sculpturing of Egg Art and fell in love with it all. I let the feeling of the piece move through my hands and let each individualized piece express itself.
