I’ve been an artist ever since I held crayons. I decorated everything and made endless mud-pies. I was the busiest, messiest kid on the block.

It was logical and practical of course to study medical technology, that was until I took a painting class. Liver flukes lost their glamor, replaced by my real passion, mud-pies. I graduated with a B.S.F.A. from the University of South Dakota, and continued making art, and still continue. I feel like the guy in “Close Encounters” making the lumps of clay into Devils Tower, not knowing why, just knowing he must.

My creations are spontaneous. I see compelling images in a lump of clay. The clay speaks to me, wills itself into a certain form. I am fascinated by shape, color, and movement. For me making art is a way of seeing, being, and thinking. I am grateful that earth formed art previously known as mud-pies replaced microorganisms. Hope you enjoy!
