I am a founding member of the GLPG. I remained a member while I earned a BFA in Ceramics and an MFA in Sculpture from MSU. I did additional work at Eastern Michigan University, University of Illinois, Penland, and the Art Institute of Chicago at Oxbow. I have been an instructor at the GLPG since 1992. My current work includes both sculptural forms and functional pieces. I work in stoneware and porcelain using multiple glazes and brushwork to finish the pieces. Much of my recent work has been glaze fired in the soda/salt kiln, which adds additional dimension to the surfaces.
