As an artist, I try to express my hopes and positive energy into the clay by using words, imagery and color. Life continually deals us with many highs and lows and I strive to find a voice while navigating through. I work in Earthenware clay and find inspiration in textiles, nature, and in those whom I love. My work has greatly changed since my early beginnings in college, and I find it is a reflection of who I am, and how I too have changed through the years. However I have never lost my joy in the challenge to create functional ware that brings joy to the one who uses it.
