Tell us about your education.
I have always crafted using different materials, both store bought and acquired out doors. Much of my esthetic comes from observing growing things.
Presently learning photo shop/paint program to edit my photos.
Self taught painting-water colour and acrylic.
Self taught 35 mm and digital photography (digital is way more fun!).
In 1994 I attended The Ontario College of Arts & Design. I studied Material Arts & Design-MADD-majoring in Jewellery design/fabrication and silversmithing. I graduated in 1998 after doing a three week summer credit course at the OCAD Studi in Firenze (Florence), Italia.
Since OCAD I have studied reiki for self healing and I am a Reiki Master Practitioner (level 4). My best results being in pain relief.
