Just Plain Jane is just who I am.
I was born and raised by a fun family in Hebron, Nebraska. There I spent endless hours making things inside and out of our family home. If there was anything else to do besides cleaning the house...we did it!
I had two choices for college -- the University of Nebraska or not at all. I loved UNL where I earned a bachelor's degree in teaching and continued on to get a Master's of Education in gifted education, while teaching for ten years. During my teaching days I moved a lot. I enjoyed teaching children in many parts of the USA and even spent one year in Barbados trying to grow exotic mushrooms.
I have two great children (who are adults now) and a 3 dogs. I have lived in Littleton, Colorado for many years now and love the mountains and all the fun people in our hood.
I have shown my work at art shows for over 18 years from Quartzite, Arizona to Ann Arbor, Michigan and hundreds of towns and cities in between. Wow, do I have some stories to tell. But I love traveling all over the country meeting new people in my RV.
I continue to grow and expand my line of art while trying to integrate a new medium into my art to continue to stretch my horizons. The past few years I have learned how to lampwork, create with Precious Metal Clay (PMC), and run a rivet gun to make crazee stuff from sheet metal. Watch for my new artistic skills to show up here as new and exciting products on the web store in the future.
I hope you enjoy my website!
