Bio

Rhode Island School of Design Graduate, with a degree in Fashion Design, studies in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, as well as drawing and painting. My love of art goes back as far as I can remember. I have memories of drawing for hours as a child, and being so pleased to see my artwork up on the Kindergarten classroom wall. My drive to create art has only gotten stronger over the years. I have enjoyed decades of painting, drawing, and a very successful career in fashion design. My work has been in The Limited, April Cornell, published, and collected in countries as far away as Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Life's journey has lead me to Philadelphia and glass.

Beautiful detail, April 9, 2011 5 stars
Pros
Beautiful detail, smooth surface, nice size. Works well with Hotline Primo Primer, and all details stay crisp.
Cons
none
Other Thoughts
Butterfly and grass details can be highlighted after firing the glass with Pebeo paints, and still be food-safe.

smooth, quality paper, April 9, 2011 5 stars
Pros
Thicker than other papers, with a very smooth surface texture. Doesn't adhere to the back of my glass after firing like the cheaper brands. I like that the logo is on one side so that you can be sure to fire the paper logo-side down.
Cons
Not the least expensive paper you can use.

3-1/2 oz Dichroic Economy Pattern Scrap On Thin Black - 90 COE

Item# 85816
economy scrap, July 31, 2010 1 stars
Pros
there were a couple nice sections that were interesting to use in my designs. The photo in the listing is a very good representation of what was recv'd.
Cons
puppies and kittens were challenging to come up with designs to use them in. Lots of black ground. Not very many whole patterns (i.e. part of a cat, flower, dog, etc).

Item# 85819
nice color and size mix, July 31, 2010 4 stars
Pros
Nice color and size assortment mix, including the teals, pinks, and yellows. I found I was able to use them in a variety of ways. I used the small ones as fun accent dots, and the larger as representative of flowers, suns etc
Cons
I can't think of any
