Mud! Paint! Clay! Guess I’ve always loved using my hands to create messes that are my funny expressions of art! Starting at the age of 5 in my backyard, the mud pies were fabulous! In elementary school, I learned I wanted to be an art teacher, being the art monitor and kiln helper. In high school, always in art room and president of Artisans, the art club. In college, same thing, art, art, art. In career, teaching kindergarten thru 3rd grades gave me lots of opportunity to share my love of art with children. We made lots of creative messes together. Such fun! Now that I am retired I can leave the crafty side a bit and focus on actual art to sell. Back into mud! I tried the wheel but found that I loved turning that clay into objects other than pots. So, now I make trucks! Why? Everyone asks. I don’t know. I just love them, the old ones with history and a story. I also love crows. I feed and name them daily and then make them out of clay, along with other feathered friends and things from nature. I also love watercolor painting, and oil. I paint whenever my hands aren’t too muddy!
