Having come from a creative family of wood carvers, wood workers, musicians, pastel artists, concrete artist and writers, I have been around paints, saws, welders, carving tools, etc. so nothing is out of bounds.
After high school I attended Madison Area Technical College in Madison, Wisconsin and received a degree in Commercial Art. I then veered off course and worked for the next 23 years in the field of Landscape Architecture. Man, did I miss my art!
Somewhere during that time I began an odyssey to discover what exactly is my art. That journey took me through watercolor, woodworking, silk painting, stained glass, welding and ceramics, all of which are self taught. I have to say I love them all but clay seems to always draw me in again. I love the raw earthy quality of clay which can become a piece of art or pottery that lasts for years…
