 "I really like to make things..."

 When I was little, besides sledding, skating, and skiing, I would spend the cold Wisconsin Winters painting ceramic statues. I was a perfectionist at it. Every paint line had to be straight.

From then on I dabbled in everything creative. I made friendships pins (remember those!)... I painted... I tried to sew... I used colored pencils... I cooked... I made stationary...

In College, at the University of Minnesota, I wanted to pursue a career that I loved. I tried photography, film studies, and journalism. I thought about interior design.

In 1996 I became a ski bum. I packed my bags, bought a YACIMA Bike and Ski rack and move to Colorado. I fell in love with Ski life. That was it, my new degree, Recreation and Leisure Studies. A year later I graduated with a degree and started "grown up life".

But I still had a desire to create.

In Italy while working the Olympic Winter Games, I fell in love with Murano glass. After the Games, my husband and I toured the Italian countryside.

I purchased glass and jewelry from every city we visited.

Absolutely a trip to remember.

While back at home I learned that my friend's sister makes glass. She took me to a glass studio where I signed up for several classes. I loved the class... Loved the medium... Loved the glass... I love the freedom to create...
