I grew up in Denver, a city girl. I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Humanities. Over the years, I have studied with many wonderful clay artists, including James and Nan McKinnell. I realized that what I admired about many artists’ work was not the technical expertise, but the spirit and soul in their work. So I started to pursue a study of Jungian Psychology, studied creative imagery work with Edith Wallace and Steve Gallegos. At the same time, I was working with many different companies around the country as a database software developer and implementation specialist. The combination of these experiences, plus a strong interest and affinity for primitive and indigenous art of many cultures, has helped to form the imagery and motivation for my sculpture.
