I am Char of Palmer Lake Colorado

Born in Colorado and have never left to live anywhere else, which I won't if I have anything to say about it.
Palmer Lake being the best in Colorado for me!

I was introduced to metal work by a co worker who always wore very unusual pieces of jewelry.  He invited me
to his studio to melt metal and see what his process was about.  I lit a torch, melted some silver, pounded the
silver out into a simple form.  And I was completely hooked on just that little bit.  I immediately signed up for
classes at ACC for beginning metalwork classes with Richard Sweetman.  Taking classes from Richard  for 7
years.  Moving on from beginning class of course!    I did continue.  I never went for a degree.  I was, and am
still, having fun with metal and stone work.
Besides the 7 years at ACC, countless workshops through ACC and
CoMA, I am self taught for the most part.  

I've been a right brainer all my life!  As anyone who knows me knows that. No doubt. I  love  to create!  
Doesn't even matter what it is.  I've made; Bird baths, fountains, wall hangings, signs, copper lanterns, glass
etchings, throw  pottery (oh yes I do that as much as I can).   I've made sconces of copper and pottery.  Have
designs for copper and glass combination sconces.  Can't wait to work on them!  I LOVE TO CREATE!  (I will
be posting pictures of as many of these things as I can soon.
So you get the picture.

Go to my Shows page.  I just won an Award!  Woops, make that two.  Two
awards this summer.  Take a look.

Well I hope you enjoy looking around.  I have a feedback page below that you can send me your thoughts,
comments, or  questions on anytime.

Take care,
Come back soon!
