is a BA in fine arts and education. I live and work in both Illinois and Colorado and have shown my work nationally and internationally.
is a hike in the woods, sleeping under the stars, a walk in the desert, climbing mountains, snorkeling in the ocean, visiting ancient ruins.
are a stick, a needle, a piece of bark, sea shells, coral, sea fans, sand dollars, starfish, bones, rocks and minerals, fabric, paper, kitchen tools, paint brushes, wire, etc
to explore the shapes and surfaces and the undeniable presence of nature in my sculptures. I use clay and earth as my vehicle to interpret the majesty of the physical world.
