In 2010, I enrolled at Santa Monica College to pursue that degree that I had never quite finished. I had intended to major in Math, but after my 3rd or 4th semester of sneaking an art class onto my schedule, my husband urged me to change my major to Art. I soon fell in love with 3D media and in 2014 I transferred to Cal State Long Beach intending to major in Sculpture, but soon found myself drawn to the Metals Department. One semester in and I was hooked...a socially acceptable way to play with fire and hit things with hammers? Sign me up! During my time at CSULB, I fell in love with enameling and blacksmithing. I served as the President of the CSULB Metal Arts Guild, and I earned a BFA in 3D Media, emphasis in Metals in 2016. Soon after graduating, my husband and I moved to a new larger home in Northridge, where I was able to turn one of our spare bedrooms into a metalsmithing studio.
