Big Rapids, MI, United States

I have worked as a professional artist for most of my life. My work has been shown in galleries, magazines and numerous retail locations throughout the United States. I've won a few awards and demonstrated for Speedball Art Products at a national Ceramics conference and my work has been featured regularly on CBS's Sunday Morning program. As far as my work process goes, Ideas come and sparks inspiration. The creative process begins. Decisions are made. The idea is manifested. I don’t limit my ideas and don’t let my ideas limit me. I have worked in a variety of media: pottery, paint, wood, glass, stone, fiber or natural materials- whatever seems appropriate to physically express the ideas. I have specialized in functional art but I do not limit myself to creating something that is functional. My work expresses my philosophy, spirituality and individuality; it is my thought process made visible. Ideas come and if they are persistent will be explored. I want my work to appeal to your senses. I want a person to feel the uncontrollable urge to touch or feel- to hold it close to one’s self. I want you to take a second look, to drink it in and quench a visual thirst. I want to be a witness to Beauty, to breathe it in and breathe it back to Life.
