I cannot remember a time that I wasn’t making things. It has always been “me”. I have been a potter for many years, and now I also am painting, to my delight. I paint mostly in acrylic and love that for the color – yes, the colors. With ceramics you don’t get to see the colors until you are finished.
My art is the window that allows me to see the creativity in myself. I get lost in the possibilities. I want the observer to feel the emotion and connection to an artwork. It is an honor to have my work in peoples homes and know they are looking at the every day.
The spontaneity of both of the mediums and the somewhat unpredictable results are endlessly interesting. As the pieces take shape. Most often the work, both clay and painting, design themselves – I am just the conduit. Form comes first and always has been the most essential element of my work.
