Jody is a self-taught artist whose philosophy in life is to just dive in head first and figure it out as she goes along. This curiosity and willingness to try new things has led to four decades of creating in various mediums. She always looks for ways to re-purpose things. Jody finds the objects she turns into lamps at thrift shops, garage sales and antique stores. Since childhood she has been intrigued with taking things apart and using the pieces to create something artful, new and even more spectacular.
