About

I was raised in a small farming community in rural Illinois. The land, its colors and contours, has left an indelible imprint on my work. Small, fragile plant forms are often featured: the ones you would only notice while lying on your belly in the grass; the ones most people trample on.

There is a collaborative element to my work. Found objects forged by other hands suggest shapes or patterns that inspire and define the direction of the piece.

RECENT FEEDBACK

"Hippos arrived safely and were a hit. Wolfgang loves them. Thank you so much for the extra effort. PS I could not wait until Valentine's Day, so we actually unpacked them together. They are the perfect addition to our home and I am certain will travel with us always."

"
I think I have fallen in love all over again - I quickly opened my parcel upon arrival and once opened I was amazed by the beautiful smell of the wax and the texture that is not captured by the photographs. It makes you want to touch it and I am not sure if you are suppose to do that or not! I have been admiring the Bunny Cloud for some time; to actually have it in hand and to experience the details ....I fell in love all over again with MY Bunny Cloud...thank you - I am now a proud owner and cannot wait to acquire more for my collection."
