Recently I was on the radio! On Music with Minnesotans at MPR with host Alison Young
about music and my work
A lovely article in the Minneapolis StarTribune mentioning me and about the Potters of Northfield (without whom I couldn't fire or work) http://www.startribune.com/local/south/183258782.html
And also on the local station here, KYMN for Art Zany with host Paula Granquist
about our move to Minnesota.

Lill Street Studios where I worked and taught.
I was also teaching artist for Art Resources in Teaching, a non-profit organization founded by Jane Addams and her friend, Ellen Gates Starr to teach children in public schools about art.
I could not have had such a smooth transition to Northfield without the support of my friend Colleen Riley who makes wonderful pots along with her husband, potter and master kiln builder, Donovan Palmquist this is their site:
I also fire with and am learning a great deal from another potter friend in Northfield, Barbara Zaveruha I could not fire my work without her!
Emily Murphy is a good friend, great teacher and has a wonderful blog and links to many good ceramics sources.
Take some time to read her blog! http://potteryblog.com/ She forged the trail ahead from Chicago to Minnesota!
My dear friend Riana de Raad lives in Northern Wisconsin. She is an amazing sculptor and mosaic artist.
Please check out her site and her classes.
