Artist Statement

 For over twenty-seven years I have made my living as a self-employed artist and have exhibited my work in juried shows, all over the country. Clay is the medium in which I specialize. People, plants and animals are my focus.  My art is featured in many collections including Epic in Verona, Wisconsin, the Menasha Public Library in Menasha Wisconsin, and The Hickory Museum of Art, in Hickory, North Carolina.
