The Endangered, Can Art Save Them?
An International Art Exhibition
(November 7 through January 8, 2021)
Growing up in the mountains of northern Arizona I have always been inspired by dramatic vistas, wildlife and the natural world. I attended Northern Arizona University to study ceramics, there after moving to Germany for several years and teaching and exhibiting abroad. Upon returning to America I continued as a studio potter exhibiting in galleries and teaching classes. I moved to Fort Worth Texas in 2006 and began exhibiting my sculptural work in local and reginal juried exhibitions. In 2014 I started focusing primarily on endangered species in hopes of raising awareness to the plight of these amazing creatures before it is too late to save them.
As a ceramic artist I have focused on sculpting endangered species for the last six years. My first endangered exhibition, " Elephants an Endangered Species Series" was in 2014 and focused on African elephants. I started expanding including various animals with each new exhibit including an Asian animal exhibit, endangered species of the world, and my most current exhibit in February of this year "Endangered Species of the Americas". Unfortunately, the Covid 19 pandemic has curtailed several exhibits that were scheduled for the year but I have continued producing endangered work in the studio because this is an issue that is close to my heart. I give 10% of my endangered sales to the World Wildlife fund to contribute to the cause and hopefully inspire others to make a difference.
