Twentieth Anniversary Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition

Interlochen, MI

"I was raised in Portage, Michigan, with the goal of becoming an automotive designer. I have always been interested in all things mechanical and this extends to art. After my first semester at Western Michigan University, I transferred to the art education program. After receiving a B.A. I realized that I had only scratched the surface of what I wanted to know about sculpture. I went right on to the M.A. Studio art program at WMU.

"After graduating I wandered through several jobs that included teaching and working as a clay modeler at Chrysler. Eventually I found my niche as a Psychiatric Social Worker for nineteen years. While I continued to build sculpture, homes, boats, and cars on a part time basis. In 2003, I turned again to sculpture, which is my primary focus.

"I currently live in Interlochen Michigan where I am thrilled to be able to enjoy the student presentations at Interlochen Center For The Arts. I have two daughters, Hobie who is fourteen years old and Andrea who is 38. I consider my ability to build and share my sculpture as an honor for which I am thankful."
