I have been a full time potter since 1980. I started out throwing flower pots for a ceramic teacher from LCC. I learned my art from his studio. He took me to a few Art Events and clay became my full time passion after that. My work has always had a carved and tactile surface. At first my designs were simple and earthy, browns and rust colored pots with textured sides. I moved to carved flowers and to the freely designed folk art scenes I do today that are colorful and happy. I like to tell a story on the each piece. It is not just a cat but a cat watching bugs in a colorful meadow under a bright sun or a rural scene with a barn, river, forest, farm land and animals. I want each one to have a meaning and bring a smile. For the last 10 years I have started to use real live plants on some of my work. I love the intricacy of the natural structure that is left behind after the plant is burned out of the clay. I add color and eclectic items to those pieces, stamps I made, floating textures or unique patterns. All my work is one of a kind.
