Artists Bio –
I am a Wisconsin Artist whose works hang in homes and businesses across the United States and Italy. As a young girl I sketched trees and landscapes and knew I would try every medium of art before I settled into clay. As an adult having experienced each of these mediums I have chosen both photography and sculpture to express my Art. I have a number of ribbons that run through my Life and Art; my passion for Community, Kids, and Culture.
My path as an artist has pulled these ribbons together. It is a journey that has evolved over time and incorporates all of these – sculpture for public places, design, the love of life, nature and her community; the joy that comes from teaching and being with and supporting kids, family and young Artisans.
I celebrate my culture through history and the ancient glaze used in my works of Art. The glaze technique I use are created by hand and are known as Maiolica or Majolica one of the first glazes known to man and used since 700 BC. I am an artist that takes note of people, time, place, bring meaning to these as I share with others. I am an Artist that lives my Art.
I am a Graduate Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and hold BFA Degrees in Sculpture & Communication Design; and a Business degree from Cardinal Stritch University
