I grew up in the Midwest and after graduating from Wittenberg University with a BFA, worked as a graphic designer for fifteen years.
After I moved to California, I became interested in the meditative world, how meditation unlocks visualization, and how that in turn unlocks female power. When my husband and I wanted to start a family, I helped found and run a freestanding birth center in San Rafael, California, and taught meditation techniques to pregnant moms to open their sense of feminine power in labor. This profound experience still influences my art today and can be seen in the many vessel and purse shapes that I use.
When my youngest child entered kindergarten, I returned to fine art full time. After the violence of 9/11, I felt the need to add clay back into my mix of media, healing myself by literally sticking my hands into the earth. Since that time, I have concentrated on working in combinations of clay, fiber and mixed media.
