From an early age Anne enjoyed creating handmade objects. In her early twenties she was thrilled to find a
local artist who taught her the basics of silversmithing. It was fun, but when she discovered metal clay, she
found the medium she enjoys working in the most. She is certified through Rio Grande, PMC Connection, and
Art Clay. Anne lives in Jacksonville, Florida, and teaches silver metal clay classes several times a month at the Jacksonville Gem and Mineral Society (JGMS). This is her third year teaching at The Great Bead Escape Retreat. She will be teaching at William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in October, 2023. In May 2022 she gave a presentation on using resin with metal clay at the Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide’s (AMCAW) SINTER convention in Pittsburgh. She is President of JGMS and is on the Board of Directors.
