I can't remember not having some sort of animals in my life. Always some stray wandering into the yard or a wild thing in need of love. Three cats all rescues share my home, three grandcats and a beautiful grand dog complete the family right now. My work is a reflection of my connection to the natural world , plants animals, wind ,water,earth and fire.
Sunshyne replied to Evelyne Schoenmann's topic in Int'l Ceramic Artists Network (ICAN) Operations and BenefitsMy fathers family was very creative, talented seamstresses, painters, woodworkers, gardeners,crafters. My creativity was encouraged and I became a floral designer. My sister is a wonderful photographer, and quilter. I have always felt a strong connection to my creative fore bearers. My love of pottery started in highschool and went dormant while I raised my kids. I was able to finally explore clay as a hobby as an empty nester.
