My life has always included art, ever since I was a child. I've been crocheting since I was nine, and have mastered many other art forms as well.
I married young, worked hard as an executive secretary and business assistant until my husband survived a traumatic brain injury. I continued to work for a few years, when we were blessed with a beautiful daughter that came into our lives in a very special way. I came home from the working world to take care of them. It was with his blessing that I continue to raise our daughter in our rural home area instead of going back to the busy city, and that I pursue my art.
A love-affair with beads came about when I was looking for something special to put on the first sweater I made for my daughter...there had to be more than pony beads? Then I found beads! I made my first rosary the same year my husband passed away, and have been abundantly blessed with many ideas since then.
The biggest moment of satisfaction is when I create something that touches another person's heart. I've been honored to have an article published about me in The Diocese of Superior Catholic Herald, you can see it here: Click Here for Story
