Artist Statement

In my ceramic work, I try to recreate the depth of color and texture that I see in the environment.  These organic elements are connected to my daily life - spending time enjoying the outdoors with my family.  I also consider how shapes in nature are similar to the contours of our body, and have tried to make references to these shapes by using their gestures and visual characteristics.  It is important to me that, while viewers are engaged with my pieces, they discover elements of the natural world around them.

You will find ceramic vases, platters, bowls, and baskets, all of which make unique gifts.  If you are interested in a particular piece, please contact me with any questions or for purchases.
