Artist Statement
I was introduced to ceramics in the mid-1970’s, and became hooked by the range of possible forms and also by the modern science that explains this ancient art. Over time, I emphasized sculpture and the figure and, as I gained skill, I took on the next challenge of getting that clay to express the motion and emotion of dance. I have been very fortunate to be able to attend Sarasota Contemporary Dance rehearsals for inspiration and working with some of their dancers has resulted in some truly rich collaborations.

***All potential buyers are welcome to view any works in person.
