How did you discover the medium you currently work in?
As a child, I learned to sew and make other things. I enjoyed art in school. I started designing and making jewelry while entertaining out of town guests. I dabbled in paint in school, in my home and in my friends’ homes. Most of my creativity comes naturally. I grow by continuing to experiment.
