I have been working in polymer clay from my backyard studio here in California for over 25 years. When I discovered the medium I was working in a wonderful art supply and fabric store in San Francisco where I was mainly focused on textiles. The first time I gave polymer clay a try, I connected with it right away. Being familiar with Italian mille fiori glass techniques, I realized a way that I could mimic the patterns that I loved in older rugs and textiles by creating simple graphic "canes" and mirroring them together in endless variations. I soon found myself building large libraries of patterned canes that were great for making jewelry.

My methods for constructing mille fiori canes and building intricate patterns have been taught to students all over the world. I have been featured in many books on polymer beginning with the seminal book "The New Clay" by Nan Roche, and including "Masters, Polymer Clay: Major Works by Leading Artists", Published by Ray Hemachandra of Lark Crafts.

I still love teaching these techniques and hope I can infect you with my enthusiasm for making intricate canes in polymer clay."
