Corn Fed Girl

My art explores aging, agriculture, nature and science, the concepts of plenty and want, reuse, and being human, through a variety of media, including high-fired clay, artist books, installation, found objects, and bronze.

Why corn?

It is solidly Midwestern, as I am.

I have found, through the deep exploration of corn, more than its history and imagery. I have found the fundamentals of humanity itself; we humans must embrace the seriousness of the science in our lives and the humorous qualities of our lives together.
