After years of corporate logistics work as an information management specialist, where I used my creative abilities to solve problems, I now use them to create fanciful, up-cycled treasures.
I remember one of the popular corporate buzz phrases was “think outside the box”. I’m so far outside the box, I’ve spent most of my life figuring out what was in the box so I could fit in!
Years before I retired, I knew I wanted to work with metal someday, but had no specific inspiration. I bought some silver flatware at a garage sale and made a simple fish and a teapot wind chime. I now create 20 different sea creatures. I so enjoy saving my creation’s components from landfills and turning them into surprises that delight. I’ve also added professional tooling and equipment over the years to make unique up-cycled jewelry.
The basement studio in my home on Lake Road, Dryden is calm and quiet. While creating my mobiles and jewelry I burn incense while I listen to baroque, pop, opera, blues and alternative music and vary my repetitive work by dancing in between job operations!
