I am a fluid artist from Wisconsin. I love a lovely life with my handsome husband and 2 pups. I have been “crafty” from very early on in life. I was a jewelry artist for about 15 years and honed my craft to the point of becoming jewelry silversmith. Just previous to COVID I was exposed to Fluid Art by my father. We tried it together one day and from then on I was hooked! I cleared out my jewelry studio and made room for the fluid art space. I studied this craft from great artists on YouTube, soaking in all the knowledge I could acquire. I have document my journey through my YouTube channel and have found that in the past 2 1/2 years I have grown exponentially as an artist and a teacher. I love teaching this art form. It has brought me much joy and satisfaction and I look forward to continuing this journey.
