I’ll be instructing a metal sculpture workshop ” Bent Out of Shape” on June 10th, 2017 starting at 9:30 am -12:00 noon.  The class is limited to 15 students! The registration fee is $45.00

Metal Sculpture Workshop  will be held at the Campanile Center  located at 131 Milwaukee St., Minocqua, WI.


This should be a fun class, I’ve instructed this workshop at the Wisconsin State 4-H Art Beat Camp (3rd-5th graders) and Wisconsin State 4-H Art Camp (6th-8th graders) at Upham Woods and at a Teachers Conference all  located in Wisconsin Dells.  I’ve also offered this workshop to my art students (3rd-8th graders) at Immanuel Lutheran School in Marshfield, WI. and to the members of the Manito Art League, located in Manitowish Waters, WI.


Everyone’s  encouraged to create through exploration of the materials, such as bending metal silverware (for example) into acrobatic performers or objects that appear to defy gravity, while creating focal points through the use of glue, ceramics, stones,  glass and metal objects, to represent the artistic style of each artist.

We’ll investigate the importance of “The Creative Process” and be guided by the Principles and Elements of Art.  Utilizing this knowledge will take participants down unexpected artistically inspired roads.  Roads that embrace the development of an artist’s journey in discovering their own creative style!


I’m a native of Chicago, Illinois, my Intaglio prints, charcoal drawings, collage and assemblages often reflect a blend of that Chicago attitude, energy and perspective, sprinkled with a touch of the Wisconsin north woods flavor.

I’m also a former art instructor for Immanuel Lutheran School.  Since 2004  I’ve instructed workshops on Intaglio Printmaking, Collage, Charcoal Drawing, Altered Books, Metal Sculpture and Assemblages, while mentoring and instructing a multitude of art programs for the UW Extension, State 4-H Arts Camps (personally servicing over 4,000 4-H youth).

Presently I’m the director of Art Gallery 450 located at the UW Marshfield Wood County Campus.  I’ve been a member of Manito Art League since 2004 and in 2016 joined the NORTHWOODS ART TOURS organization   http://www.northwoodsarttour.com . I offer  workshops in the area of printmaking and collage, and sell artwork at the “iMAGiNETHAT!  Art Studio on Bayer Lake Road (one mile north of Lakeland Airport off of North Farming Road.  My art studio is listed as #12 on the art tour map this year.
