I started making shrinky-dink art about two years ago. After watching the Cosmos I thought it would be super silly to doodle Carl Sagan on shrink film. I made a charm of him and immediately started to get requests for other scientists and things to have doodled onto shrink film.
Since then I have branched out and started to scan my drawings into the computer and laser etch them into wood and make prints and things. My most recent doodles are of Country singers which I am laser etching into wood and hand painting.
I love doodling all sorts of things. I am really pleased when I can doodle something that makes people smile. My favorite thing about being a maker at craft fairs is watching people’s expressions while looking at my booth. I like to watch people’s faces  go from confused to smiling at the sight of  scientist  shrinky-dink magnets. Thats what keeps me doodling and crafting is knowing that my love for drawing is being shared and enjoyed.
What is your favorite handmade item?

I like all handmade items. Handmade items for all!! 
What do you enjoy outside of crafting?

 I work at an amazing place called Techshop in Allen Park which is where I spend most of my free time. Its a big DIY Center with everything from sewing machines to welding equipment. Its a great place to work, meet people, and get inspiration. 

One random fact about yourself.

 I'm a huge banjo music fan.
