My name is Linda Laird Staszewski. My previous career was in manufacturing, where I worked as an Industrial/Safety Engineer. However, I found my passion in life is sculpting with polymer clay. My goal is to share this passion through Escape-to-Create Creativity Workshops, to allow people to develop their own creativity.
My Mother and I attended numerous Doll Conventions throughout the years. We made so many wonderful memories. I learned an array of new techniques each time and would travel to take classes from some of the true master artists. It was always awe-inspiring to see the works of some of the most famous artists in the world! Being able to share this with my dear Mother was such a blessing. She would sew the clothes for my creations. We were a team. When she passed in 2004, I didn’t touch clay again for 10 years. It was too emotional, with so many memories.
