About Tes


Many artists will tell you that they are inspired by nature. I’d like to take that one step farther.  I am in awe of nature! For me everything is a result of the Love of the Creator for the created! Any talent I have is because He has bestowed it upon me. I get to enjoy the gift. If you enjoy the finished item, I am doubly blessed. 

Art has always been more of a hobby, making gifts for family and friends. Occasionally, doing commission work. That is until discovering metal clay. Introduced to metal clay at the Las Vegas Glass & Bead show in 2009, it was shortly afterward, with the help of a couple of dear friends Metal Clay Today e-zine was founded. 

Metal Clay Today is devoted to giving recognition, encouragement and a voice to the many gifted artisans, teachers and enthusiasts in the metal clay community. Published quarterly, each edition is filled with step-by-steps, inspiration, informative articles and more. Metal Clay comes in so many different forms and varieties you’ll have a hard time deciding which one is your favorite. You are invited to join me on this journey! Visit Metal Clay Today for more information.

My work has been featured in The Crafts Report, Glass Pattern Quarterly and Fired Arts and Crafts magazines.

One last note,  I’m involved with the Instructors’ Network. It is a directory service bringing Artist Instructors and prospective students together. I hope you’ll check it out!
