I’m pretty excited. My first magazine article, “Framed Scribble Earrings” is out in the April issue of PolymerCAFE. It was an interesting process and a definite learning opportunity. What surprised me most was how difficult it was to define my process and describe it in a concise and clear way. I am not a production artist, so I don’t spend too much time making multiples of a similar design. There’s little incentive for me to streamline my process and I have the luxury of starting over if something doesn’t work. To write this article, I had to pin down my easiest and most successful methods. It was an interesting process to say the least.


I have a new and deep appreciation for all the artists who regularly write articles. It’s harder than it looks, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I had something unusual to share. Connie Donaldson, the new editor of PolymerCAFE is a great person to work with. Really great. I’ve been playing around with raised designs in liquid clay, what I call “Scribble” designs, since late 2002. I’ve had a lot of requests to write up the process over the years, but I wasn’t entirely ready to let it go. I don’t use this technique very often any more so it was pretty easy to let it go.

I hope you enjoy the article. Frankly, you should go out and buy the issue just for the amazing Kathleen Dustin images. After you’ve finished drooling, check out my article.
