I was given a set of oil paints when I was five. When I was young my favorite thing in the world was a new box of crayons - actually it still ranks right up there. Over the years I have worked in many mediums. I am a stock, portrait, and fine art photographer, I have been a working artist creating a line of character gourds for over twenty years, and enjoy plein air oil painting in my spare time.

All my ceramic pieces are made entirely by me. I find inspiration everywhere I look but typically I am inspired by the natural world around me. I am an avid organic gardener, growing much of our fruit and vegetables. I feed the birds and have kept a "life list" of birds I've…

All my ceramic pieces are made entirely by me. I find inspiration everywhere I look but typically I am inspired by the natural world around me. I am an avid organic gardener, growing much of our fruit and vegetables. I feed the birds and have kept a "life list" of birds I've identified for about 35 years. Attracting birds to the garden has multiple beneficial effects. They're wonderful and relaxing to watch and as they take up residency they help control the insect population and eliminate the need for pesticides.

My favorite haiku's written by a collector about my Rudy Cat...( ! )

RUDY TAKES A BITE
CREAMY WHITE BIRD DOES NOT SEEM
VERY GOOD TO MUNCH!


INQUISITIVE CAT
RUDY LOVES TO PLAY WITH CLAY
A FELINE POTTER?

~
A Poem about Rudy by my collector Jan written after I told her he was behaving!


I am Rudy, an awesome cat!
I sometimes think, "enough of that!"
I'd like a new identity
To see what else this cat might be!

I'll pretend just for awhile
To forgo my feline style.
I think a dog is what I'll be
Though dogs don't look a bit like me!

I'll sit on laps and stay awhile,
I'll flash a regal "canine" smile!
When they say "come" and "sit" and "stay"
I will consistently obey!

I'll follow them around the house
With nary a thought of bird or mouse.
In the studio I'll be good
Just like a well-trained canine should!

I'll find a spot to call my own,
I'll never have an urge to roam.
At night I'll dream of rawhide bones
And a cute doghouse I wish to own.

But wait...........................

No playing with the pots of clay?
No foraging throughout the day?
No climbing trees, or house, or roof?
No chance to be a bit aloof?

No more daydreams throughout the day
Of chasing animals for prey?
No more doing just as I please,
Living only to appease?

Forget this nightmare I've just had!
I will NOT be a different lad!
It's not fun to try to be
Someone else who's just not ME!

Felines really are divine,
A specialty that is all mine!
For I am Rudy, an awesome cat,
Content to always remain just that!
