My love of clay and desire to celebrate the beauty of this great art form fuels my creative energy! Clay has been a major part of my life for forty-five years. Since 1973, I have utilized a broad array of ceramic processes, including functional, sculptural, low-fire, mid-range Cone 6, high-fire reduction and woodfire to explore the amazing nature of clay in regard to form and surface decoration. After all these years, I still love and am passionate about what I do!
I began selling my work in the Chicago area while also teaching ceramics part-time at both the university level and in Chicago's public schools as a visiting artist. Much of my inspirations came from these teaching experiences, especially while working with children. Their spontaneity and daring use of color continue to influence my work!
