Clay Alchemist

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

My work is created out of plasticine , also known as modeling clay. It is a medium I have worked with since I was a child and never grew tired of it as I am able to shape and reshape it for years. I actually use the same clay from 2008, only adding more and more to my supply with each project. I love to sculpt anthropomorphized animals and food as well as human caricatures. .... ArtPrize 2014, I displayed "I'm Not Myself" at DeVos Place, and was featured in two ArtPrize curator's lists. .... ArtPrize 2015, my project "claylist" made the Top 25 Time-Based entries. .... ArtPrize 2017, I was awarded an ArtPrize Seed Grant to create "closer to family".
