Art & Craft Fair Calendar / News & Current Events
In the recent past, most of my pottery was purchased directly from local Art & Craft Fairs and Galleries around Southeastern Wisconsin. Currently, shows have been cancelled or delayed so that option is not available at the moment. Please consider Shopping ONLINE instead. Local Customers can use the Coupon Code: LOCALPICKUP when they check out on Etsy to eliminate shipping costs and come and pick up their items at my home studio in Brown Deer, WI.
Virtual Studio Tour
If you have not visited me at my home studio, and are curious about how and where I work, I created this virtual tour of my studio that includes some demonstrations of how I make my work. Thanks for watching! Approximately 17 minutes long.

New Aspen Series at MOWA Gift Shop
In the Fall of 2019, I created a custom Aspen design series to celebrate the newly finished landscaping on the grounds of the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, WI.
The three images represent the Bark of the Aspen tree, Aspen leaves in the Summer and Aspen leaves in the fall. These pieces are only being sold directly in the MOWA gift shop while supplies last. This is a second in a series of custom designs created for MOWA in 2019.
Hydrangea Pottery for MOWA Gift Shop
This Spring 2019, I created a custom Hydrangea design to celebrate the newly finished landscaping on the grounds of the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, WI.
These pieces are only being sold directly in the gift shop while supplies last.
Milwaukee & Madison & Chicago Skyline Series
Over the past year and a half I created new designs that reflect the Downtown Milwaukee Skyline off of Lake Michigan and Downtown Madison off Lake Monona. These designs are being offered on plates and vases of various sizes. I just finished developing a Chicago Skyline design and will be featuring these items at all of my art fairs this summer. Some pieces are currently available in my online Etsy Shop.

The new mugs should be available for direct sales only in all of the Colectivo Coffee Cafes in Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago areas November 2018.
