My hands are the center of my artistic spirit and represent the tactile vigor I bring to my work. A lifelong search for a way to meld my creative energy with a desire to make things began with my moms old treadle sewing machine at the age of five. This led to a childhood of crafting sewing building and designing. These experiences built my appetite and appreciation for texture color lines and patterns. In 2006 serendipity brought clay into my life and I was immediately hooked on the endless possibilities inherent in such an impressionable medium. After securing all the necessary supplies including my own kiln I was off and running. I still enjoy sitting down late at night with my paper pen and scissorsas if I were still that little girland making new patterns for the multitude of ideas that come from a seemingly endless and mysterious source. The one-of-a-kind glazing effects that Ive developed over time have become my signature look and are immediately recognizable.
