at 12 I bugged Mrs, Hoxie every day after school to make somthing in her tiny craft shop (Time & Talent)

by 13 I was teaching all her classes in candle making

macrame, decopage paper quilling and any other products she sold and kids summer classes i made 11k dollars that year selling my macrame ( HEY it was the 1970'S)

moved to Fl. at 18 and found stained glass

I have always wanted to be a starving artist but the food has always been much better as a workaholic resturant manager /owner/ back to manager ( its nice to be on the receiving end of a paycheck

I found polymer clay about 2008 when i was looking for a hobby that i could do in the house (it's to cold in the winter in ohio to do staind glass in the garage) i dont tend to produce quantity but i do strive for a professional quality

to my work. I am working on several different clay tools

that some day i can have produced for sale. but the whole

patent production marketing thing is a learning curve i have to go through.
