They say once you get clay under your fingernails.....


It's true in my case. I have been working with clay for over 40 years and yet I am still finding new things to try. 


Over the years I have made sculptural "visual puns," studied throwing in Tuscarora, NV, constructed multicultural dioramas for the Crocker Art Museum as a resident artist, created tile work inspired by Japanese hanging scrolls, dabbled with mosaics, and taught primarily hand building to all ages.


My current work is primarily hand built functional ware.  The work is always heartfelt and sometimes sassy. My aim is to connect with our common shared experiences and start conversations.
