Closing the Circle

Mentorships, Internships, Community Outreach & Scholarships

Giving back is a very important part of my life. I have been on the receiving end of much good throughout my life and I feel that it is very important to close the circle by giving back whenever possible. I fully acknowledge these gifts that have been given to me from teachers, mentors, family and friends. I would not have this business and the ability to support my family this way without the continued support of my community.

I am very passionate about teaching. I love working with people and being part of their creative learning process.  I hope that in sharing this knowledge and passion for the creating beautiful things by hand helps other’s to achieve their goals, believe in themselves and go on to share their gifts with others. Contact me about the Gratitude offerings below.
