From the Artist:
"In the past, I had always considered myself to be a 3-D artist. I have had a love for thrown and sculpted ceramics for a very long time. I tended to shy away from drawing and painting because I felt I would never have the skills necessary to produce artwork that I would technically be proud of. Over the past 10 years, I have started to work more frequently in pencil, batik, watercolor, pastel, lamp-worked glass, and mixed media ceramics. The development of my skills in these areas has served as my inspiration and led me to create the work you see today. My most recent artwork depicts scenes from not only my hometown of Mullen, NE, but also rural scenes from Mid-Western Nebraska and Western South Dakota (which happen to be my two favorite places in the country). My inspiration has become the chance to capture moments in time and places that I feel need to be preserved through my art. They are pieces of not only my life, but possibly the lives of others either as individual images or as a collective work."
