About Me

I have been involved in making creations utilizing various forms of media including fabric, paper and even metal for most of my life. As a child, I used to play in the parts department in my father's auto repair garage, he taught me how to hammer rings from copper pipes.  The problem is, there is simply way too much choice in materials, tools and learning resources available today and I want to try it all.

My main passion is the metal arts, particularly copper and aluminum from jewelry to table tops.  I also dabble in fun jewelry for relaxation.  When not hammering metal, I love to play the djembe and sing with my local women's chorus & drumming group.  I've only recently made the jump into selling my work.  Please visit my web site:  www.effusivearts.com
