Someone once told me I had an overdeveloped sense of whimsy. It was the best compliment I ever received. I love to create whimsical characters, whistles, and miniatures. Inspirational plaques and nativities are also a favorite of mine. How great to bless someone with scripture engraved in stoneware clay!
After teaching art for 34 years, I became a full time artist in 2012. My professional development has been enhanced by the state organization, Indiana Artisan...it is a group of over 300 artists from all over Indiana, who have juried in to this organization. I became a part of Indiana Artisan in 2013 and have been inspired and stretched by this amazing group of fellow artists.
My artwork is one of the ways I connect with others. It is an intimately personal expression of my world view and all that I hold dear.
