Cuff of Intention

Q: If you could learn to create art in any medium you have not tried (or have not mastered), what would it be?

A: I believe polymer clay could be a fun medium to explore.

Q: What artist you would like to study with (living or dead) and why?

A: I actually have two: Miriam Haskell and Georgia O’Keeffe. I love Miriam Haskell’s use of “hand-picked” baroque pearls, rhinestones and filigree. I often use pieces of her timeless costume jewelry in many of my designs today. I have always been mesmerized by Georgia O’Keeffe’s “point of view” expressed in her minimalistic style of painting.

My Path...

Q: What key piece of advice have you learned in your creative journey that you share with others?

A: More than any other bit of information, I share with my students, is that imperfection is required. There are NO mistakes. Mistakes will often take you in a direction you may not have ever taken. Art is both imperfect and perfect at the same time. I believe I give my students the freedom to learn to let go, and to embrace imperfection. I, myself, have Anne Grgich to thank for that!

Q:What adornment could you not go without?

A: My wedding ring.

Q: What 5 items do you have in your studio that you use nearly every day?

A: My chain nose pliers, ball peen hammer, bench block, vintage rhinestones, and my computer (of course =)
