Liz Carter is the current owner and resident artist of the Driftless Studio & Gallery here in Mineral Point, Wisconsin and currently resides in a little limestone cottage on Shakerag Street.  From a zig-zag life journey starting in Minnesota and later out of Illinois, she has been released to pursue her life-long dream to create, and fully opened her studio producing clay sculptures and paintings for her gallery in Mineral Point.

Combining the love of the outdoors and of the Upper Midwest, she produces images of flora and fauna of the Driftless Region, the Southwest and areas of her native Minnesota in clay, watercolor, acrylic/oil and scavenged natural objects from the Mississippi River and Lake Superior.

One of the most popular sculptures that she has produced are morel mushrooms from clay.  Because her foraging capabilities for the real mushroom are below average, she stumbled on a process to produce them in clay which mimic the real thing, which has been a popular item for sale in her gallery.

She is excited to provide that experience to others to create life-sized hanging or magnet morel mushroom ornaments for personal totems, and hopes you gain the same enthusiasm for creativity during this process.
