“Who you are…inspires me…to create for you.”

Founded in 1990, Untapped Resource, Inc. is the creative expression of all my experiences in ceramic research, kiln firing, as well as innovative art and design. When I moved to the Twin Cities, and began my business, I realized my greatest asset was creating from my clients’ specifications. As my experience grew, so did the opportunities to create on a larger scale.  My success is evident when viewing this –

  • Travel Channel / HGTV, 1999-2007                                                                    I was featured in 4 episodes of the Travel Channel’s Passport to Design show, along with one episode of HGTV’s Before and After show. In 2007, I had the opportunity to volunteer my time as a behind-the-scenes artist for the Extreme Makeover-Home Edition filmed in Minnetonka, MN.

“My creation process begins with conversation. My first priority is to get to know a bit about the clients who want my services, and understand what they love.  From these discussions, I create a theme that is uniquely personal to my clients – perhaps depicting an old family recipe on a backsplash, or incorporating favorite flowers, pets, or natural beauty from their travels in  a  wall mural. People get excited when they realized they can put a little of themselves in the design.  Including that personal element is what makes my company unique.”
