From the start I felt a real connection with clay. I liked the tactile aspects of clay and how it can be shaped and molded and how the material changes properties with the addition of heat. During my time at Iowa, I became a proficient thrower and hand builder. My sculptures were large coil structures from hand rolled coils influenced by African art. Around 1996 I started working on metal sculpture with professor emeritus Julius Schmidt. I learned how to make sand molds and to cast iron. I then went to work at Max-Cast in Kalona with Steve Maxson and Doris Park. They taught me how to cast bronze (using a ceramic shell) and how to weld bronze. Later, I became interested in printmaking; intaglio, drypoint, lithography, silkscreening. I worked with Robert Glasgow, Keith Achepohl, and Jim Snitzer. I enjoy working in many different mediums. Lately, I’ve been silk screening shirts for Tomas Lasansky. I always look forward to the next creative endeavor!!

ART IN THE AFTERNOON is a monthly artist talk / workshop usually held on the 3rd Sunday. This series focuses on introducing local artists to the Iowa City community.
