Art Consultant. Jewelry Artist. Photographer. Social Media Conversationalist.
Most of the people who live in Sedona are CFAs (come from aways) and although I was born in Phoenix, I was raised here. I’m proud to say I’m a graduate of the Sedona Red Rock High School – Class of 2014.
Art From The Heart
I got into art because my aunt loved it and we did it together. She taught me that creating something with your hands is truly a beautiful thing to do.
Today I do it because it’s who I am. When I’m doing anything creative time disappears. The world around me ceases to exit.
My artistic interests are broad and varied. All through school I fueled my passion for classes in:
- metal casting
- performing arts
- digital media production
I’ve worked with just about everything. Pencil. Paint. Clay. Small to big DIY projects. Even duct tape. And I design tattoos. I listen to my heart and follow where it leads me.
Photographer, Jewelry Artist
I work with my camera almost every day. I’m proud to say that most of the photos and videos on our Instagram, Facebook page, and website are mine. The camaraderie of a class, a tour de force performance by our glass ninjas, the exquisite detail of a finished piece of art – if it captures my fancy, I chronicle it.
And I’ve gotten back to wire wrapping – I like experimenting with different ways to weave, shape, and manipulate the wire. The possibilities are endless.
May I tell you a story
Every day our artists create beautiful new pieces of hot-glass art. I’m here when the spark of an idea becomes glowing molten glass, and I’m here when the finished piece comes out of the annealing oven to be displayed in our gallery or shipped to an ecstatic customer.
I’m the gallery’s art consultant but you can think of me as your personal guide. I know the artists, I know the story behind each piece. I’ll show you all the really cool things that go on at The Melting Point.
If you time it right you can watch our glass ninjas, Austin and Jordan, working with red-hot molten glass in the hot shop or Dani finessing delicate beads at her bench in the torch studio. If they’re teaching a class, you’re welcome to watch that too.
Fascinated by a particular piece of art? Now that’s a really interesting story….
