2006 Winger Award Winner: Given to graduating collegiate students to further pursue individual goals

In 2005 I was approved to install an outdoor sculpture on campus, this project did change over the course of a year and the transformation was photographically recorded.  I removed the installation from campus Fall 2006.
In 2004 I was a part of NCECA's undergraduate exhibit in Indianapolis, which I attended and displayed three pieces.  In the fall of 1998 I taught a troop of Brownies ceramic hand building techniques, showing them how to make pinch pots, and how to build with both coils and slabs. Then allowed them to make anything they wanted using any or all these techniques in any combination.


Currently a member of the Allen County Public Library online Fort Wayne local artist list.


In 2005 a photograph of one of my pieces was on a poster featuring IPFW ceramics that made was made for our University booth at NCECA.

In 2001 a photograph of one of my pieces was printed in the IPFW catalogue for the fall schedule of classes.
