Announcement   I hand build my sculptures so each is infused with its own soul. No piece is done until it looks as if it could hop, scurry, or bound off the sculpting table!
Because I love the varying earth tones of clay, I often incorporate different colored clay bodies into a single piece and finish sculptures with stains that highlight the natural colors and textures. I also enjoy building animals on antique toys
I am happy to ship worldwide. For shipping to destinations not listed, please convo.

Colorado residents will have sales tax added to purchase.

About

I had to became a sculptor because my fingers remembered

I was not always an artist. I used to be an academic— a researcher, professor, and writer in community studies and education. My identity shifted in 1996. The university class I was scheduled to teach didn’t make enrollment and I found myself with a free evening.

“Why don’t you come to my drop-in clay class,” a friend asked. I had worked with clay as a child and thought it might be fun to try again. So I went. And my fingers remembered. They pushed into the clay and the clay would not let go. I spent the next 15 years figuring out how I could sculpt full-time.

In 2005 two big events occurred in my artist timeline. I built my art studio and I adopted a most mischievous labradoodle named Tupelo Honey. I call him my muse.

Tupelo Honey is goofy, cuddly, enthusiastic, and completely joy motivated, which means he gets into a lot of trouble. He eats whole watermelons and steel wool and money. He prances through the neighbors’ prize-winning roses and sleeps wherever he pleases –like on the dining room table. He is a perpetual puppy and a LOT of work but I admire him. Tupelo Honey knows how to stay open to the innumerable joys of a new day and he reminds me that breaking rules in the spirit of adventure does not make you a bad dog (though people may forget this when they are mopping up).

In 2008 I began a fundraiser in his honor. IDOG link http://www.idogrescue.com/ is non-profit dedicated to helping doodles. Look for details on my facebook page in October.
