ABOUT MARY LYON

Mary Lyon is a veteran broadcaster and five-time Golden Mike Award winner who has anchored, reported, and written for the Associated Press Radio Network, NBC Radio "The Source," and many Los Angeles-area stations including KRTH-FM/AM, KLOS-FM, KFWB-AM, and KTLA-TV, and occasional media analyst for ABC Radio News. She's been a frequent guest on several HGTV shows, hosting how-to segments on local TV news programs and such syndicated shows as "Soap Talk," and originated her own craft program, "DIY Crafts" on the DIY Network.

Mary has been an artist since childhood, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art at U.C. Irvine. She discovered polymer clay in the early '90's, and developed a technique for simulating realistic-looking gold ngget beads. Her "faux gold nuggets" won an international competition sponsored by the National Polymer Clay Guild, and are part of the permanent collection of The Bead Museum.

 

Mary invented a unique and decorative "Shaker Egg" percussion instrument and has created custom Eggs for the collections of such celebrities as Harrison Ford, Stevie Nicks, Demi Moore, Michael McDonald, Neil Young, Anne Lockhart, and Elizabeth Taylor's AIDS foundation.

She creates original jewelry items in semi-precious stones and dichroic glass. She teaches art classes for children of all ages, and writes a monthly column called "The Crafty Mom" for United Parenting Publications. Her work has been featured in such magazines as "Glass Crafter," "Jane," "National Jeweler," and "Gifts & Decorative Accessories."

Mary remains an advocate for liberal causes, responsibility and accountability in media, environmental education and support of the arts for children, and green living. She is also a parenting expert, having written and illustrated the book "The Frazzled Working Woman's Practical Guide to Motherhood."
