Metal Effects

DSC 0093Cheryl has been active in the craft industry since right after dinosaurs ruled the earth. She is the author of "Metal Effects", the A to Z of METALworks (DVD & CD) and two Die Cut Art books.

As the owner of TENseconds Studio she conducts mixed media workshops all over the world. Her passion for arts include; calligraphy, PMC, working in metal, fabricating jewelry and showing others how to "metalize their worlds!" She loves to show people how to use her VerDay Paints and Patina which go on anything and everything. She has produced hundreds of videos on her website about metal embossing and VerDay Paints.

Her hobbies are collecting vintage printer’s type, yard art and old neon sign letters; which she stores in her studio. She has recently taken up wood turning and is able to combine her love of mixed media with wood. She lives in Texas with her husband, Ken and has two adult children. She has grandchildren but they have four legs and are extremely hairy. Her adult children do not understand that she wants the two-legged variety.
