LEARN + CONNECT
Did you know that I have a BFA in Enameling from the Cleveland Institute of Art and a Master in Art Education? I LOVE to share information and help troubleshoot studio issues!
Let's hang out virtually or in person and I'll give you the lowdown on all things metal, etching, and enamel! Private, one-on-one information sessions based on your specific questions and needs for your studio. Scroll down to check out the information session options.
Etching metal is a great way to add visual storytelling to your work. I offer a variety of etching methods. You pick what you would like to learn, and I can help guide you through your first etch. From etching with ferric chloride, setting up an electro-etching bath, etching with PNP paper, and how to edit an image and print for an etch. Let's Learn!

One of my favorite ways to add imagery OVER enamel is by using decals. I enjoy finding old documents, postcards, and text to create imagery on enamel.
Decals are FUN. Let me show you how.
Oh, enamel. My favorite medium, and a tricky one! Enamel offers so many techniques, and I love to teach them all. From basic enameling inquiries to getting started, to the seasoned enamelist wanting to explore a more complex technique, I am here for you.
Begining Metalsmithing + MUCH MORE
Pick a Saturday, bring a friend, and enjoy a studio day learning a new skill. All Day workshops are offered in groups of two or private. Workshops are offered in various subjects: beginning metalsmithing, Enameling 101, Etching, Riveting, Surface Decoration in Enamel, and Bezel Setting. Don't see what you want to learn listed? Just ask me!
Information sessions are an opportunity for growth without taking a large class and on an artist's salary budget. I have a wealth of knowledge on many techniques in enameling, etching, and decals. I love to share information through teaching and enjoy the connections that teaching brings. I would love to share this information with you! Are you interested?
