Artist Statement

My work in ceramics seems to be constantly evolving and has most recently found expression in 3-D animal heads.  I generally use the symbolism of a particular animal as found in various mythologies or stories to find meaning and purpose in connection to my own life.

At the same time, the other side of my brain wants to express itself, so to satisfy those urges, I  make utilitarian tableware in the form of dishes and mugs.  I decorate them with designs taken from the natural world such as plants and flowers.  I often take photos and make sketches during my walks in nature and use those as the basis for my designs.
