2023 Loveland Benson Sculpture Garden
-  It was my honor to be notified by the Loveland High Plains Arts Council that Amazing Grace (my 4' great blue heron) was selected and had received final approval by the Loveland Visual Arts Commission to be one of four new bronze sculptures for permanent placement in the City of Loveland's Public Art Collection.   

​In August of 2023 it was installed and dedicated at a public event in the North Lake Park section of Benson Sculpture Garden.  One of the best days of my life!

THE ARTIST: I am a self-taught sculptor, born in Eveleth, Minnesota and raised in Richland, Washington.  The family's handmade fishing cabin near the boundary waters of Northern Minnesota forged an early connection for me with the spirit of animals and sacredness of nature.

In 1973 I moved to Loveland Colorado and married the love of my life, David.  I made a career in the Corporate world of hi-tech until I retired as VP of HR for one of the business groups in 2006.  In retirement I was encouraged by a local sculptor, Donna Pelton, to give sculpting a try.  

Sculpting has provided an opportunity for my head to get in full rhythm with my heart and a joyful way to connect with and touch others.  My husband and I call Loveland home.
