BORDERLINE BARBIE - Featured Etsy Artist

Borderline Barbie began her interest in the art world at a young age - as a young girl she was involved in drawing and various areas of creativity. While attending Purdue she continued her love of art getting her BA in Art Ed and Fine Arts. It was in her senior year she dis- covered her love for metals and photography. Staying at Purdue for graduate studies in Photography and Related Media she created a ton of work during grad school which culminated in an installation in which she constructed a house inside the gallery .... featuring video, handmade books and handmade lockets. During this time Barb began fabricating jewelry and learning how to produce jewelry pieces. She is currently an instructor at Purdue and has been fortunate to teach many metals courses and continues to be heavily involved in the jewelry club, PAJAMA (Purdue Art Jewelry and Metals Club). Barb's work can be seen and purchased at: www.borderlinebarbie.etsy.com
