Colorado Artist



My studio is in Evergreen, Colorado where I continue to explore the boundaries of clay expression as it relates to the natural world. At an early age I knew that I would be an artist. I became a naturalist just by virtue of my environment - a glacially carved forested ravine on the edge of Lake Michigan full of animals, birds, nests, amphibians, and reptiles. I received a BS from Illinois State University where I studied a broad range of art media with ceramics as my primary focus. Clay became my canvas of choice.


I paint, draw and splash layers of glazes on the way form and will often use turtles or other animals as a design element. The forms are either slabs of earthenware or stoneware clay draped over a hump mold or functional pottery that is thrown on the wheel and distorted. Sculpted animals such as rabbits, dogs and cats are often added to my work.
