I am a studio potter living in Red Oak, Iowa. However it was the time I spent growing up on a farm in central Nebraska that has influenced me the most as an artist. It was there that I first learned to love the pure random beauty and colors of nature. My journey in clay began as an undergraduate student in college, and eventually I earned a B.F.A.E degree in art. After spending a very rewarding career working in the field of education, I am now contentedly creating pottery in my home studio.
