Woodland Fairy Bracelet Copper Electroforming for Artists and Mad Scientists
A The Tucson Bead Show Workshop [select another show]
I grew up in Los Gatos, Ca. and graduated from Los Gatos High School as an art student. I began my formal art training at San Jose State University. After a few years of study I began to worry about making a living as an artist. I opted for a degree in geology as I was good at it and the colors and properties of minerals intrigued the artistic side of me. I graduated with a MS degree in geology and a teaching credential in art and science. I received local and national awards for mentoring and training. Working on the edge has been the biggest factor in my ability to grow as an artist. I believe It is important to live for today. Teaching experience: Teaching experience includes a State Single Subject Teaching Credentials in Art and Science and a Lifetime Community College Teaching Credential. I started teaching science in 1976 at State and Community College level, and art and science at the K-8 level. I teach flameworking, wire wrapping, and electroforming to adult learners across the country.
