I have been an artist my whole life. When I encountered my first bead project I was in third grade. They put us native kids in a special class to teach us our heritage. Though back then I never knew how versatile bead work could be. I was reintroduced when I attended college. That is when I really dove into the world of beads, I haven't left since. I love creating a project and most of the time I give them away. Though I have had my pieces in gallery's. I still paint, draw, write, sew, and bead. Along the way some items find who they belong to and some get sold.
