What made you try pyrography?

I've been fascinated with pyrography (literally, burn drawing – in my case on wood) for a while as a decorative craft, probably because my father was a woodworker when he wasn't practicing law. However, I didn't pick up an actual wood burner until 2006, when I took a mixed media class. Although wood burning was not the central theme of the course, it was something that I enjoyed and therefore continued to practice until it became part of my signature look. Over the last 4 years, I add dimension to all the pieces I have worked on ... well, the ones on burnable surfaces, at least.

Ask me anything about my art, makeup, hair or life!
