My works are hand-built or sculpted clay fired to cone 6. I use underglazes applied like watercolor or stain in addition to glazes the pieces are often whimsical and I like to include a surprise when I can. In terms of color, I enjoy muted and earth tones. Sometimes I add a dash of bright color for interest or to add to the narrative. Animal and human forms predominate.
What motivates me to create is internal and instinctual. I simply love working with my vision and hands to give birth to a concrete object that began in my mind’s eye. I am frequently surprised by the outcome of what emerges when my brain, hands and the clay marry.
I draw inspiration from nature, painting, printmaking, Mexican folk art, and Asian art.
