Souls of the Skunk River featuring Deb Scott


It all started with Pete the Pothead. As I built him, he took on a life and personality of his own. From him “Souls of the Skunk River” was born. I have no desire to create perfect people, they don’t exist. I love the relationship I have with my clay souls and sharing them with you. My people are a combination of life experiences, imagination, sights, smells, feelings, and humor. They might be your relative, your neighbor or yourself. Please enjoy getting to know them!


I’m not formally trained, I create people from the heart, maybe kindred spirits, imperfect, navigating life as best they can. You might find a soul you can relate to!

The Red House Series of work by Annie Guldberg
These images explore the jagged side of life. Looking at our emotions and experiences directly in the face. Examining how difficulty, pain and struggle makes us who we are and affects how we see the world.

Annie Guldberg resides in Mt. Pleasant, IA with her husband and sons. Her passion is vibrant oil paintings that have been swirling in her mind and studio since she was in high school. Her artwork is shown locally and throughout the midwest. In addition to her own work, Annie also teaches a full schedule of one-on-one art lessons in her studio. When she isn’t painting, Annie loves spending time in nature with her sons, and watching rom-coms and sci-fi movies from her husband’s majestic VHS collection.
