Teaching

I am available to teach privately through the Mesa Arts Center, at your studio, and for workshops throughout the year. My specialties are in general fabrication, enameling, chain (“crochet,” loop and loop) and fiber techniques, hammer setting, and soldering. I am also an experienced product and jewelry photogaphy and can teach about photography techniques to shoot jewelry and other 3-d media as well as how to use Photoshop and/or Photoshop Elements to make your images look their best.

If you are looking for current metals and jewelry classes in the Phoenix area, you can find a wide variety of techniques and times to choose from through the Mesa Arts Center website and the Phoenix Center for the Arts website. Thank you!

I regularly teach Enameling and Independent Studio at the Mesa Arts Center. Please visit mesaartscenter.com for registration details.
