W O R K : Like most that follow a creative path our history is full of adventures experimenting with various materials. My history includes sewing, crocheting, needlepoint, painting, sculpture and doll-making, just to name a few. My career in the creative arts began during my college years working in pottery studios for 4 years. For the last 15 years, I've made my living as a freelance graphic artist working for clients such as Universal Studios Florida, Disney, Tupperware, United Way and many more. As of 2004, after the hurricanes that hit our area, I began focusing on jewelry. It has not only been an opportunity to further pursue my creative interests but a chance to work from my heart. When a customer delights at her own beautiful image enhanced by my jewelry, I am truely inspired to create. A schedule of of my shows can be accessed on www.ottobonedesign.com.

M E : I live in beautiful Winter Park, Fl with my husband, and four pets (mini-schnauzer, Otto; boston terrier, Molly; cats, Little Bit and Moose, one goldfish and a gaggle of tadpoles). And when I'm not in my studio, I may be in the back yard getting my hands even dirtier.
