My work consists of low-fire and mid-range clay bodies press-molded and sculpted into tiles wall-pockets mosaics platters and sculptural pieces. The achievement of rich color depth is a result of utilizing glazes in a layered painterly process over the highly embellished clay relief and intricate detail. I make no distinction between my artwork and my life. All intertwined; life and work are one. My personal narrative is frequently part of the clay with themes of protection vulnerability and metamorphosis depicted in the folk tale style of storytelling. My deep interest and love of the natural world is also portrayed in the presence of botanical animal and insect aspects.
