Art is my peaceful passion, with pottery as my medium. My dreams to be an artist were ignited back when I was a child; always wanting to create with whatever medium was available (including mud of course!). I grew up in the rolling hills of Northeast Iowa; making mud pies with my two older brothers and now continue to play in the mud with my own three sons. I enjoy dabbling in clay and sharing my passion for art and earth with anyone who also embraces the beauty of the natural elements that surround us. Most of my pieces intertwine with nature by way of function, shape, color or elements. My pieces focus on simplicity & functionality with organic beauty & uniqueness.
