ARTIST BIO

 

                                                           

I am an artist. What a joy it is to say that. Clay has made me an artist and has given me great joy. Clay has been my media of choice since 2003. Working with it quickly became my passion and working at the wheel allows me to fully immerse myself in the act of creation. Clay, especially porcelain, feels wonderful under my hands. As pots begin to take shape and become something both beautiful and functional I feel centered and at peace.  Slab building provides another method of creating joyful pieces that are both artistic and functional.

Recently I have added a second media that allows me to continue to express joy through creativity. I make reed baskets. Following new weave patterns to create baskets of infinite variety and complexity is fun and exciting.  Dyed reed allows me to add color to my baskets. Again I am able to create work that is both functional and beautiful just as I do with clay.  So if my work in clay and in reed expresses the joy I feel and gives joy to the beholder, I have met my goal as an artist.
