Drawn to metalwork through curiosity and fascination with the process, I began welding while working in the Tanque Verde School District as a Spanish teacher and Technology Integration Specialist. The soothing glow of heated metal was my downtime to reflect on lesson success and challenge and plan for future classroom adventure. “Solaz” is Spanish for solace. Solace is what my alone time creating in metal offered me.
My style, craft and knowledge has continued to grow during and beyond my years in education and now I am proud and excited to be putting all my efforts into the further development and expansion of Solaz Designs.
