I am a native Kansan, raised on a farm near Lawrence, Kansas. I am a self-taught jewelry artist, and have always been attracted to learning how things are made. When I have the opportunity, I enjoy attending jewelry making workshops. I live and work in Oskaloosa, Kansas on our family dairy farm. When not enjoying the outdoors and all there is to do around the farm, I am busy working at my jewelry bench, aspiring to design my next great piece of jewelry!
