About the instructor
I grew up in a small town in the Uintah mountains, and currently live in an even smaller town right near the San Rafael Swell. I have always had an interest in most any kind of art medium I could get my hands on. I studied formal art for 4 years at UVU, mainly focusing on (but not only) ceramics. My background in and love for art and color over time has combined with my love of food, which has translated into making decorative cakes. I taught myself the finer details by troubleshooting my mistakes and following online courses and instructional videos. It began as a hobby and eventually turned into running a bakery from my home doing custom orders and commissions for weddings, birthdays, or celebrations of any kind. I have honed my skills working in cake and desert shops, as well as pushing myself to create designs brought to me by clients. I believe we never stop learning and improving our skills and passions and I would love to share my passion with you!
