I am a retired art teacher, having taught art for many years to students aged preschool through adult. I am also a professional artist, having won awards for my work in printmaking, acrylic and alcohol ink paintings. In recent years, I have enjoyed creating jewelry, most recently western-style bracelets inspired by visits to the Teton Mountains, Yellowstone, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. My bracelets are made mostly of Greek and Italian leather and Portuguese cork. They feature magnetic clasps. Some have matching earrings.
I also create blank greeting cards from my original paintings. They come with envelopes for mailing, or may be framed as artwork.
