Artist Statement:

Clay will speak to you if you are willing to listen. Clay will show you paths to take if you are willing to take risks.
Textural surfaces and its relationship to form and functionality has been my focus for the past several years. As I continue this clay path I am constantly intrigued with new shapes and forms both organic and technology produced. Whether these textures and forms are machine made or by nature, I am willing to imprint into clay and follow it directions to a completed work of art.
