About: a Passion for Polymer

Passion for Polymer magazine was published online and in print from 2017 through 2022. Since then, we've taken it into the Creative Clay Club, where there are new tutorials every week.

I want to live in a world where everyone loves to mix up their media and enjoy art making and friends around the world, no matter where you live or how you create.

As an art explorer and podcaster, I have been featured on the blog,,,,, The Art Infused Life podcast, and in magazine articles and books including my own, Polymer Clay Art Jewelry, published with F & W Media and available at Michael’s, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and became a # 1 international Best Seller with my contribution to The Creative Lifebook - The Art of Living a Fully Expressed Life in 2023.

On TV, I showed how fun and easy it is to create with clay on River City Live, Jacksonville's local morning show!

When I'm not up to my elbows in polymer clay, covered in paint with random glitter stuck in my hair, you can find me outdoors enjoying nature, reading a great book, or snuggling with my two pocket beagles and Magic, the cat.

I invite you to Create Along on YouTube @createalongtoolsandart , which has been produced since 2007! The video show features us using our clay tools in fun ways, plus tutorials, techniques, and projects.
