Swiss native Brigitte Egli came to Leadville, CO in 1988 to race sled dogs. The following year she started ceramic classes at CMC in Leadville. Surrounded by talented artists and wonderful people who she has learned from on different levels in the past 20 years, she is primarily self-taught. Her inspiration springs from her back yard and the old wild west - wildlife, animals and nature. She has always enjoyed sculpting clay. It's never easy, but when you create something that is life-like, it feels rewarding. I'd like to gain recognition as an artist to make a full-time carer and use my art to help nature conservation, animal rights and welfare.
