Can’t believe January was the last time I posted here. I have a bit of catching up to do. I’ve been teaching a figurative clay sculpting class with my first sculpting instructor Jane Bunge Noffke I continue to learn from Jane’s passion and ability to capture human emotion in clay.
My other big news is a group exhibit I have opening this weekend. I’ll have 10 pieces on display along with 8 other artists. Included in this body of work is the finished assemblage using the head I documented progress on here.
I’ll follow up with more thoughts next week.
I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water.
Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist.
My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
