( I'm older than that now! )
I was born 1953 in New Jersey, USA. I always enjoyed working with my hands. Wood shop was my favorite class in grammar school and high school. I also played keyboards in a local rock band. And flying around the tri-state area with my solo pilot's license. ( At 16 years old )
After high school, I took welding lessons and started a job welding industrial paint mixiers. Then worked in a sign company. Before the CNC routers, all the letters were cut out by hand. To cut out the inside of an "O", you had to drill a hole inside to get the saw blade in. The scrape center pieces looked like a face, with the drilled hole being the eye. So I started creating small figures out of the scrap. Then I started adding different hair styles. I also entered a photogragh in the company ( United Advertising Corp. ) competition. I received second place.
I moved to Florida in 1980. Still working in signs, becoming a production manager for two companies. I'm retired now but enjoy creating art, big art!
I am transgender, I did not want to add this because I thought it would distract from my art. but it seems people want to know about the artist. That brings up another thing, I do not consider myself as an artist. I have no training in art. I think of myself as a craftswoman.
