I have been studying and working in the medium of pottery/ceramics for 5 years. My formal education is in graphic design. I have received three “Best Sculptural” awards from The Clayworker’s Guild of Illinois at their annual show. I have received a“Purchase” award from McHenry County College where one of my pieces is currently on display. I enjoy the combination of graphic design with pottery using slip decoration, printmaking techniques sad ceramic transfers. My goal in my craft is to combine two dimensional graphics with 3 dimensional pottery. I draw from my experience as a graphic artist and try to merge it with functional and sculptural pieces of ceramics. I currently work and live in Crystal Lake, Il.
