Artist Philosophy /Bio
After graduating from college with a degree in Technical Writing, Stacie and her husband left Arkansas for Oregon. A friend in Washington state introduced her to beads, which in turn, led her to metalsmithing.
Stacie has traveled extensively with her husband around the United States and Asia, honing her design and metalsmith skills.
While living in Singapore, the artist Chankerk taught her how to really 'see' shape and form. Back in the States, she had a metalsmith studio in downtown Chattanooga for two years, leaving again with her husband on an adventure filled year and half long tour of the United States in 2009. On this last trip, she studied wax carving and lapidary skills in Black Mountain, NC with noted jeweler John Beirle; mined for quartz crystals in Hot Springs, Arkansas; was a featured artist at the Arkansas State Capital for a month; discovered a lapidary artist in Taos, NM whom she uses his stonework exclusively in her designs; collaborated with noted Porcelain artist Katie Swenson in Eugene, OR for her show, “Poems in Clay”, and is currently working from her home studio in Western North Carolina.
