My career as a successful fashion designer and entrepreneur has spanned more than 30 years. In 1990 I developed my own manufacturing company "A Head Start" accessory and clothing company. I developed produced, artfully designed, unique, casual and career women's clothing with international distribution in Europe and Asia. In 2005 I sold the company to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming an established artist.
I studied Fine Art at the prestigious Cooper Union in New Yorkk and received my Bachelor Degree in Economics and Business at Empire State College. These degrees have prepared me for developing and establishing a creative art career. I was fortunate to discover the medium of decoupage under glass which I have been actively studying for the last 10 years. This form of expression has been around for thousands of years but in my work I have taken it to new contemporary levels, using bronzing, metal leaf and abstract expressionism.
Having traveled around the world in the fashion business I have been fortunate to visit many beautiful places. The beauty of the southwest has drawn me to not only a career change but to pursue a new lifestyle now live part time in New York and Arizona since 2002. The diversity and beauty of the desert and surroundings have inspired my work in this medium.
Being in business and an entrepreneur all my life recognize how important it is to not only create a beautiful but affordable product I am presently working on a one of a kind exclusive collection of pieces that will appeal to everyone's economic level.
My work can be seen at galleries in Cave Creek, Atlanta Georgia, New York City and private collectors. I hope that you love and appreciate crat as much as I do in creating it.
I loved the art work and I loved the teacher. Thoughtful, caring and friendly, Luci is the perfect teacher, she taught systematically and with experience. I will go back for more decoupage for sure!!
Excellent teacher, learnt a lot as well as meeting new like minded people.
Such a great class! Small class size, lots of attention and great advice. Came out with a beautiful finished product in only one class. Thank you for being a wonderful teacher Luci!
Luci taught us a doable project within the time frame. Under her guidance, our projects turned out beautifully.
Great class, teacher is patient and very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The class was fun and I would highly recommend.
An exciting class with a very creative teacher!

Thank You Luci , The class was great , fun and educational (6/25/18). It was a pleaure meeting you and i will definetly return for another one. Thank You , EV
Class was fun. Going forward may want to tell students if they want to bring personal pictures or picture of something (the maximum size allowed) and copy in color on certain type of copy paper. This way spend less time looking for something you like.
